“ENERGY STAR partners, such as Fort HealthCare, are leading the fight against global warming by improving the efficiency of their buildings and facilities,” said Jean Lupinacci, chief of EPA’s ENERGY STAR Commercial and Industrial branch. “We applaud these efforts to help protect our global environment for generations to come.”
ENERGY STAR was introduced by EPA in 1992 as a voluntary, market-based partnership to reduce greenhouse gas emissions through energy efficiency. Today, the ENERGY STAR label can be found on more than 60 different kinds of products, commercial and industrial buildings and new homes. Products and buildings that have earned the ENERGY STAR designation prevent greenhouse gas emissions by meeting strict energy-efficiency specifications set by the government. Last year alone, with the help of ENERGY STAR, Americans saved about $19 billion on their energy bills while reducing the greenhouse gas emissions equivalent to those of 29 million vehicles.
