EPA Honors 110 Energy Efficiency Leaders

EPA Honors 110 Energy Efficiency Leaders

The U.S. Environmental Agency has honored 110 manufacturers, retailers, real estate services firms, local governments, schools, builders and other enterprises for outstanding performance as participants in the Energy Star efficiency program.

The annual awards program recognizes efficiency efforts at three levels. The top honors go to companies and organizations in the Sustained Excellence category, which is followed by the Partner of the Year category and winners of the Award for Excellence.

Of the 17,000 Energy Star program partners, 50 were selected for the top award, 40 were named Partners of the Year and 20 were cited for excellence for 2010

Eleven of the businesses and agencies that received Sustained Excellence this year had gone to the winner's circle at least four times before as top honorees.

USAA Real Estate Company and 3M each collected their sixth Sustained Excellence award in ceremonies on March 18. CenterPoint Energy, GE Appliances & Lighting, Giant Eagle Incorporated, Gorell Enterprises Inc., New York State Energy Research and Development Authority, Osram Sylvania Inc., Transwestern, Whirlpool and Wisconsin Focus on Energy each picked up a fifth top award this year.
