Make Energy Saving Fun By Entering EPA's 2013 ENERGY STAR Competition!


It’s that time of year again! The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is accepting applications for its 2013 ENERGY STAR National Building Competition, when commercial buildings and tenants across the United States compete to see who can shed the most energy waste.

What is it? This is a great opportunity to demonstrate your environmental leadership, add some fuel to your energy management program, and reduce your operating costs. Competitors in 2012 who reduced their energy consumption saved an average of $25,000 and reduced energy consumption by 8 percent

If you compete, you’ll get ready-to-use materials from EPA to help you promote your participation and energy-saving successes. And your efficiency efforts reduce greenhouse gas emissions, resulting in a cleaner, healthier environment for the rest of us. It’s a win for your bottom line and a win for the planet.

New for 2013: For the first time ever, commercial tenants are invited to compete alongside buildings. So whether your organization occupies a whole commercial building or part of one, you can register and compete for the title of Biggest Energy Loser!

Sign me up! The registration period is now open and will run through May 31. Visit www.energystar.gov/BattleOfTheBuildings to learn more, sign up for an informational webinar, or register one or more commercial buildings or tenants.
