ENERGY STAR National Manager, Public Sector
A government-backed, voluntary program that helps businesses and individuals protect the environment through superior energy performance by providing energy-efficient solutions for homes, businesses, and institutions.
The national symbol for environmental protection through energy efficiency, recognized by more than 75% of all U.S. households.
Commercial buildings and industrial facilities generate about 50 percent of U.S. carbon dioxide emissions.
30 percent of energy consumed in commercial and industrial buildings is wasted.
Energy costs represent a typical school district’s second largest operating expense, after salaries—more than the cost of computers and textbooks combined.
Reductions of 10 percent in energy use can be possible with little or no cost.
