Now is the time for Energy Star partners to think about national
recognition for their outstanding efforts. Every year the U.S.
Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE)
recognize partners that excel in energy efficiency performance and promotion by
awarding them the crystal Energy Star. If your organization is one of
these leaders, mark your calendar. The due date for all applications to
EPA is December 17, 2001. Find out more by visiting www.energystar.gov, calling 1-888-STAR-YES
(1-888-782-7937), or apply directly at www.epa.gov/nrgystar/newsroom/news_awards_appl.htm
The prestigious Energy Star award not only
honors the individual recipients. It also provides opportunities for
winning organizations to gain the national spotlight and share their
experiences with others around the country. Press releases, case studies,
and endorsements from the EPA Administrator herself are only a few of the
communications perks available to award recipients.
winners will be notified January 17, 2002, and the ceremony will be held in Washington, DC on March 26, 2002. If you would like more
information on Energy Star or what your organization can do, please contact
