Success Story – MN ENERGY STAR Challenge

Energy Star ChallengeENERGY STAR-certified buildings meet high benchmarks for efficiency, lowering energy costs for owners and managers. That’s what’s driving the Minnesota ENERGY STAR Challenge —Energy Smart has partnered to recruit 83 organizations, and 13 buildings have already become certified. Energy Smart provides technical assistance, and ensures participants receive the utility rebates they’ve earned. According to Lynne Dahl of Goodwill-Easter Seals of Minnesota, their organization joined the Challenge as part of ongoing efforts to reduce their carbon footprint. Key to the Challenge’s success has been a grant from the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency that makes low-cost financing available.
