A Dealer Guide to ENERGY STAR®: Putting Energy into Profits

The purpose of this 33-page guide is to help automobile dealers and their managers learn about opportunities to save energy and reduce utility costs. Saving energy also reduces emissions of greenhouse gases that may contribute to climate change. This guide is intended to highlight energy savings opportunities for dealerships to implement or discuss with energy related service and product providers. It is not a substitute for the participation of architects, designers, construction firms, facility managers, and other experts in the design process. This guide recognizes the important role franchisors can play in specifications and in some aspects of dealer facility design. Regardless of the role of your franchisor, there are opportunities in this guide for all dealerships.
