First Retail Buildings Awarded the ENERGY STAR

Tuesday, October 30, 2007

Four JC Penney stores are the first retail buildings in the country to earn the ENERGY STAR for superior energy performance and environmental protection. Of the almost 5 million commercial buildings in the U.S., retail buildings account for the largest energy bills and release the second largest percentage of greenhouse gases. With the recent availability of the ENERGY STAR for retail buildings, retailers can pursue significant savings in energy costs while fighting global warming.
