Why participate?
Industrial facilities are built to do a job well, and energy plays a central role in getting it done. But rising energy costs can take much of the profit right out of the goods you produce. Improving your facility’s energy intensity by 10% can make a significant difference in your profitability and productivity. And being recognized as an industry leader in strategic and sustainable energy management offers many benefits beyond energy cost savings — corporate reputation, community relations, and employee morale.

Successful Challenge participants will be featured on the ENERGY STAR website and a letter will be sent to your company’s senior management. Energy Trust will coordinate with ENERGY STAR on local recognition and publicity for your actions.
