Ciralight, Inc., based in North Salt Lake, UT, recently announced a commitment to protect the environment by becoming an ENERGY STAR Partner. Ciralight’s voluntary partnership with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency‘s ENERGY STAR means that it will work toward helping its clients improve the energy efficiency and performance of their facilities.
“We believe that an organization-wide energy management approach will help our clients enhance their financial health and aid in preserving the environment for future generations,” said Ray Torres, general manager of Ciralight. “We’re proud to be an ENERGY STAR partner and feel our SunTracker active daylighting system can make a significant contribution towards reducing energy and preserving the environment for future generations.”
ENERGY STAR is a joint program of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the U.S. Department of Energy helping save money and protect the environment through energy efficient products and practices. Results are already adding up. Americans, with the help of ENERGY STAR, saved enough energy in 2007 alone to avoid greenhouse gas emissions equivalent to those from 27 million cars—all while saving $16 billion on their utility bills.
The EPA provides an innovative energy performance rating system which businesses have already used for more than 62,000 buildings across the country. The agency also recognizes top performing buildings with ENERGY STAR. Ciralight is listed as a “Service and Product Provider” in the commercial/industrial program, helping buildings and certain industrial facilities to become more energy efficient. These include hotels, hospitals, schools, office buildings, warehouses, retail locations, and dormitories.
In partnership with ENERGY STAR, Ciralight will help clients to:
- Measure and track the energy performance of their facilities at all locations.
- Set a goal to improve the energy efficiency of their buildings by 10% or more, in support of the ENERGY STAR Challenge.
Ciralight also pledges to:
- Encourage its staff and community to learn about the benefits of energy efficiency and to implement appropriate energy efficiency measures.
- Encourage other companies with whom it works to take the ENERGY STAR Challenge.
