First Presbyterian Becomes an Energy Star Partner
Kudos and thanks to FPC's Facilities Deacon, John Humphries, who has initiated our church becoming an energy star partner. To learn more about what this partnership means, please John’s description below:
First Presbyterian Church joined Energy Star as a Partner and makes a fundamental commitment to help protect the environment through the continuous improvement of our energy performance. We believe that an organization-wide energy management approach will help enhance our financial health and aid in preserving the environment for future generations. In partnership with ENERGY STAR, we will:
· Measure and track the energy performance of our organization’s facilities where possible by using tools such as those offered through ENERGY STAR;
· Develop and implement a plan consistent with the ENERGY STAR Guidelines fro Energy Management to achieve energy savings;
· Help spread the word about the importance of energy efficiency to our employees, members, and our community; and
· Highlight our achievements with recognition offered through ENERGY STAR.
We understand that our commitment to measure, track, and improve the energy performance of our organization is supported by the resources and tools offered through ENERGY STAR. In addition, we understand that we will be recognized on the ENERGY STAR web site as a Partner. To be eligible for additional recognition, we will share with EPA our progress and milestone conditions governing the use of ENERGY STAR and Portfolio Manger logos, which are registered trademarks.
First Presbyterian Church looks forward to our partnership with ENERGY STAR. ----- John Humphries PE
