Maple Shade, NJ, March 28, 2011 --(PR.com
)-- On March 14th, 2011, Staples Inc., one of GreenTech Energy Service’s “greenest” clients, was awarded the 2011 ENERGY STAR® Partner of the Year Award for Energy Management. This was in recognition of its efforts to maintain the highest standards of excellence in energy efficiency. As part of this effort, Staples has reduced its greenhouse gas emissions, obtained a growing percentage of its energy from renewable resources, reduced waste, and improved vehicle efficiency.
GreenTech Energy Services is pleased to be participating in Staples’ sustainability efforts. Over the past several years, GreenTech has designed and implemented energy savings solutions for over 60 Staples warehouses and distribution centers and 200 retail locations throughout the country. Obsolete lighting that no longer meets Federal energy efficiency standards has been replaced by new technology that cuts energy use and costs, while improving the aesthetics of the buildings.
"Staples’ has carefully measured the amount of energy it has saved through all these lighting projects,” says Bob Valair, Staples’ Director of Energy and Environmental Management. “Many have cut energy consumption by nearly 50 percent, and dramatically shrunk our facilities’ carbon footprints. The projects also improve light quality, which enhances the comfort, safety and security of the associates and shoppers. The projects themselves have gone very smoothly. GreenTech’s crews are clean, quiet and efficient, and careful to work around our schedules. Last but not least, these lighting upgrades have significantly cut our utility bills. With a payback of less than two years, the projects confirm Staples’ belief that doing good things for the environment is also good for the bottom line.”
