Crescent Electric—An ENERGY STAR Partner
ENERGY STAR® is a joint program of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the Department of Energy (DOE). The program was created to recognize and encourage energy efficiency and help businesses and consumers easily identify products that can help them save energy, save money and help protect the environment.
As an ENERGY STAR partner, Crescent Electric provides our customers with the latest high-efficiency equipment and materials. Whether specified by architects or required by changing building codes, our experienced staff can help guide you to energy-efficient lighting, HVAC components, motor controls, and electrical products to fit any application. We also provide energy management services and efficiency upgrades.
Putting Energy Efficiency into Practice
The ENERGY STAR logo on items ranging from light bulbs to major appliances identifies products with superior energy performance. But the ENERGY STAR program has also developed performance ratings for commercial and institutional buildings and manufacturing facilities.
These ratings, on a scale of 1 to 100, provide a means of comparing the energy usage of individual buildings against other buildings of a similar type. Buildings that achieve a rating of 75 or higher are awarded the ENERGY STAR designation. A benchmarking and auditing process helps building and facilities managers evaluate the performance of their buildings and industrial plants and determine what savings might be realized from upgrading equipment and systems, and which energy conservation measures are the most cost effective.
Crescent Electric is engaged in a benchmarking and auditing process on our own facilities, several of which have already earning the ENERGY STAR designation. The knowledge we gain from our own process helps us guide our customers to cost-effective products and practices. At Crescent Electric, our participation in the ENERGY STAR program is just one way that we practice what we preach in energy conservation.
