Wednesday, March 11, 2020
WASHINGTON — Today, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) announces that 95 U.S. manufacturing plants earned ENERGY STAR certification for being among the most energy-efficient plants in their industries during 2019. Compared to average facilities, these plants saved $520 million on energy bills and nearly 100 trillion British thermal units (Tbtu) of energy, enough to meet the annual energy needs of almost 670,000 American households. Through superior energy efficiency performance, these manufacturing plants also significantly reduced air pollution, avoiding over 6 million tons of greenhouse gas emissions.
