DALLAS, Mar. 31, 2020 — After another year of continued leadership in the realm of energy conservation, Cenergistic has earned the 2020 ENERGY STAR® Partner of the Year – Sustained Excellence Award for superior contributions to ENERGY STAR. This will mark the twelfth year in a row Cenergistic’s accomplishments are recognized by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE).
“Twelve straight years of recognition is a stellar achievement,” said Dr. William S. Spears, Cenergistic’s CEO-Founder. “I’m delighted to have ENERGY STAR again validate the effectiveness of our program. We started with an idea to save energy costs for my home school district and in 34 years have saved more than $5.8 billion for clients across the nation.”
The ENERGY STAR Partner of the Year – Sustained Excellence Award is the highest honor among ENERGY STAR awards. EPA presents the Sustained Excellence Award only to partners that have already received ENERGY STAR Partner of the Year recognition for a minimum of two consecutive years and have gone above and beyond the criteria needed to qualify for recognition. Winners range from small, family-owned businesses to Fortune 500 organizations — representing energy-efficient products, services, new homes, and buildings in the commercial, industrial, and public sectors.
“I salute the 2020 ENERGY STAR award winners,” said Anne Idsal, EPA Principal Deputy Assistant Administrator for Air and Radiation. “These leaders demonstrate how energy efficiency drives economic competitiveness in tandem with environmental protection.”
