16 businesses. 2 teams. 5 months.
Equals 11% energy savings.
The average commercial building in the US wastes up to 30% of the energy the business inside pays for each year.
In 2014, 16 Stanwood businesses accepted a challenge to see how much energy they could save. Over 5 months, their cumulative savings exceeded 11 percent, demonstrating that with a little time, ingenuity and feedback, businesses can make a notable dent in their energy use and bills.
In the coming months, the participants and supporters of this challenge will share the best practices from this program with other businesses and communities.
