The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s ENERGY STAR brand is recognized by more than 65% of the public as the easy way to save energy and money while reducing global warming emissions. ENERGY STAR Congregations is an information service that can help you control your energy costs. Congregations that implement even a few, simple, strategic energy-efficiency upgrades can quickly save 10 to 15% monthly. A more comprehensive upgrade can save 30% or more.
Energy savings are dollar savings that can be used for other programs. We help you learn more about energy-efficiency upgrades that can also enhance facility comfort, appearance and even improve the asset value of your building.
Our goal is to help you reduce energy waste and, in the process, prevent pollution. ENERGY STAR offers analysis tools and accurate, current information to help cut your energy costs.
