Last week, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the U.S. Department of Energy announced the winners of Energy Star’s Partner of the Year award, honoring 128 organizations for their dedication to conserving energy and helping millions of families and businesses help protect the environment.

79 winners were awarded the Sustained Excellence award for continuing their superior energy conservation efforts as leaders in the Energy Star program.

49  winners were awarded the Partner of the Year award for the first time for effectively managing their energy consumption by incorporating Energy Star products and practices in their operations.

The awards were given for multiple different categories, including home performance with Energy Star, climate communications, and excellence. In addition to the 128 award winners, 9 home builders received special recognition for their long-standing efforts in constructing Energy Star certified homes in celebration of the 20th anniversary of the Energy Star Certified Homes Program.
