North Wind Office Earns EPA’s ENERGY STAR® Certification
The North Wind Corporate Office located in Idaho Falls has earned the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA’s) ENERGY STAR certification. This certification signifies that the building performs in the top 25 percent of similar facilities nationwide for energy efficiency and meets strict energy efficiency performance levels set by the EPA.
“North Wind is pleased to accept EPA’s ENERGY STAR certification in recognition of our energy efficiency efforts,” said Sylvia Medina, North Wind President and CEO. “Through this achievement, we have demonstrated our commitment to environmental stewardship while also lowering our energy costs.”
“Improving the energy efficiency of our nation’s buildings is critical to protecting our environment, “said Jean Lupinacci, Chief of the ENERGY STAR Commercial and Industrial Branch. “From the boiler room to the board room, organizations are leading the way by making their buildings more efficient and earning EPA’s ENERGY STAR certification.”
ENERGY STAR was introduced by EPA in 1992 as a voluntary, market-based partnership to reduce greenhouse gas emissions through energy efficiency. The ENERGY STAR energy performance scale helps organizations assess how efficiently their buildings use energy relative to similar buildings nationwide. A building that scores a 75 or higher on EPA’s 1-100 scale may be eligible for ENERGY STAR certification.
