(PRWEB) October 15, 2012
Through the use of energy efficient technology, Clark Township has significantly reduced energy consumption and carbon emissions at the Clark Township Town Hall. Specifically, the lighting technologies which were implemented into the facilities have met and exceeded the requirements of the 2005 Energy Policy Act (EPAct) to be certified as “Energy Efficient Commercial Buildings.” Through the EPAct Gives Back™ program the Township has been rewarded for their initiatives and stewardship.
The energy saving measures demonstrates Clark Township strong commitment to the local environment and tax paying community. The lighting system alone will save tax payers more than $33,350 per year in utility costs. The reduction in energy consumption decreases the Township’s carbon emissions by 62,747 lbs. (31 tons) a year. This is equivalent to the Township removing 6 cars off of local roads or planting 156 additional trees in the community.
Clark Township went through an intense engineering analysis and inspection process in order to meet all the requirements of the Energy Policy Act, administered by Walker Reid Strategies, Inc., and have received certificates for their achievements in Energy Conservation. Their commitment to a greener facility is admirable and an example to other institutions.
