EPA ENERGY STAR Certification is a trusted program designed to honor and celebrate facilities operating in an efficient manner. Since the first building earned ENERGY STAR certification in 1999, tens of thousands more buildings have sought to earn this designation by lowering their own carbon footprints.
Did you know that Michigan has the most ENERGY STAR-certified houses of worship in the country? Will your building be next?
To qualify, a facility must have an ENERGY STAR score of 75-100. This is determined through tracking energy bills over time in the free, online Portfolio Manager software. Once a facility has a score of 75-100, operators may apply for ENERGY STAR certification.
Don’t forget, if you need some help reducing your energy usage, refer to tips/suggestions from the Action Workbook for Congregations.
