Jul 01, 2015 01:00AM
This achievement is attributed in part to the success of the DC Sustainable Energy Utility (DCSEU) and the District’s overall sustainability plan, Sustainable DC. For the second year in a row, the DCSEU has been listed as a best practice for the District in reaching its energy efficiency goals.
“Our city is being recognized as a model that will directly influence how our nation approaches issues and policies that build a more sustainable and energy-efficient future. We are proud to be recognized as one of the top three most energy-efficient cities in the country, but our goal is to be number one,” added Ted Trabue, managing director of the DCSEU.
The District continues to be recognized for its laudable efforts in sustainability and energy efficiency. Recently, the District was also recognized by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) for having the most ENERGY STAR-certified buildings in the country.
