Motivate with a competition

Create your own energy efficiency competition

Competitions can be a great way to motivate your team to find new efficiencies, engage occupants in your efforts, and multiply savings across your portfolio – all while helping the environment. Any organization can run a competition, from trade associations, commercial businesses, and local governments, to school districts and congregations.
