Although we are seeing a relatively steady growth of businesses, organizations and individuals taking ‘energy efficiency’ seriously, seeing the Georgia Force take it to the next level is very rewarding and a sign of the times (exposing the benefits to very large groups of people, no fear of educating them to save money).

Watching the Georgia Force walk their talk through action is honorable and makes it easier for other groups to follow suit.  Encourage others to do so today; don’t wait… CSea

ATLANTA — Today, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), in partnership with the Georgia Force, collected Change the World with ENERGY STAR® pledges at the Georgia Force Arena Football game in the Gwinnett Arena in Duluth GA.  The Georgia Force pledge drive urged attendees to make a change with ENERGY STAR® by challenging them to take simple steps to save energy, which can help save money and protect the climate.

As part of the event, EPA Regional Administrator, Gwen Keyes Fleming was designated the honorary captain of the team and performed the coin toss on the field at this televised game (126 Charter, 248 Comcast and MeTV)..  EPA staffed Change the World tables in the concourse and took pledges.  At halftime a drawing from the pledges determined the winner of a signed football.

“In recognition of the 20th Anniversary of ENERGY STAR®, we want the metro area to know that saving energy not only helps save money and the environment, but it can also be a lot of fun,” said EPA Region 4 Administrator, Gwen Keyes Fleming. “We’re excited to broadcast this important message as a service to our community.”

To date, more than 1.3 million new homes and nearly 16,500 buildings across all 50 states have earned EPA’s ENERGY STAR certification. The ENERGY STAR label can be found on more than 63 different kinds of products with more than 5 billion sold over the past 20 years.

Americans can take the “Change the World, Start with ENERGY STAR” pledge.
