Today is Global Wind Day, an international campaign to promote wind as a valuable renewable energy resource. In the spirt of sustainability and energy conservation, we’re pleased to recognize some EnergyCAP customers that are doing their part to reduce energy consumption.
The EPA’s annual Top Cities rankings have been released, and once again the three highest ranking cities—Los Angeles, CA; Washington, DC; San Francisco, CA—are EnergyCAP users. In total, 11 of the Top 25 Cities rely on EnergyCAP for utility bill accounting and energy management (1):
|City||ENERGY STAR Buildings||Floor Area
(Million Sq. Ft.)
|Emissions Prevented (MTCO2e)||Cost Savings
|1||Los Angeles, CA||587||140.5||307,000||$203|
|3||San Francisco, CA||341||95.6||263,000||$203|
|12||San Diego, CA||164||28.4||56,000||$33|
Per the EPA, nearly 6,500 buildings earned ENERGY STAR certification last year. As a group, they saved nearly $1.7 billion on their energy bills and prevented more than 5 million metric tons of greenhouse gas emissions from entering the Earth’s atmosphere.
