Did you know that most congregations can cut energy costs by up to 30% by investing strategically in efficient equipment, facility upgrades and maintenance? Congregations decide to focus on energy efficiency for a variety of reasons, including lowering utility bills, reducing energy consumption, and reducing pollution that is harmful to human health and the environment. Virtually all faith traditions teach stewardship of the earth and of its life-supporting natural resources.

ENERGY STAR has the tools and resources to help. With free, unbiased information and technical support from ENERGY STAR, your congregation can more easily improve stewardship of your budget's energy dollars and of the earth by reducing energy waste and energy costs, while protecting the environment.

If your property receives an ENERGY STAR score of 75 or higher, it may be eligible to be certified as ENERGY STAR, meaning it’s among the nation’s top energy performers. Earn the ENERGY STAR for your existing property.
