EPA announced thirteen winners of the 2008 ENERGY STAR Small Business and Congregation Awards. This year’s winners are recognized for doing their part to save energy and fight climate change through effective energy management practices and innovative efficiency solutions. Together, these award winning organizations reduced annual carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions by more than 860 tons, equivalent to the CO2 emissions from the average energy use of more than 100 homes for one year. The winners also demonstrated that improving energy efficiency is an effective low cost solution, even in the face of significantly expanded business operations. Financial savings for this year’s winners totaled more than $160,000 in annual energy costs.
