Thank You to the Bus Tour Sponsors
The National ENERGY STAR Change a Light Bus Tour is being coordinated by the government's ENERGY STAR program, but would not be possible without the support of sponsors who are providing key elements of the tour, including the clean diesel bus, components of the traveling education center and local event coordination. Special appreciation goes to the following!
Motor Coach Industries (MCI)
Motor Coach Industries (MCI), a top North American manufacturer of intercity coaches, is actively working to encourage Americans to "go green" by traveling by coach. To this end, MCI is providing our national tour with their custom built bus equipped with a 2007 EPA-model clean diesel engine, and fueling it with ultra low sulfur diesel. Taking public transportation is an effective way to reduce our impact on the climate, as one bus can displace the need for more than 50 cars to hit our nation's highways!
JCPenney, one of America's largest department store, catalog and Internet retailers, has made a long-term commitment to energy conservation and environmental initiatives. In 2006, even with an increase in store operating hours and square footage, and with the addition of 28 new stores, JCPenney was able to reduce its energy consumption. For this, JCPenney was named 2007 ENERGY STAR Partner of the Year for Energy Management by EPA. JCPenney has taken this commitment one step further by sponsoring the Education Center that is traveling with the national tour.
