The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the U.S. Department of Energy have presented Pepco with the ENERGY STAR® Partner of the Year – Sustained Excellence Award.
This latest accolade marks the 6th ENERGY STAR award Pepco has received, which recognizes the success of the company’s energy efficiency programs that help provide customers with more control over their energy usage while saving them money as well.
“We are committed to providing safe, reliable, affordable and sustainable energy for our customers and it is a significant achievement to be recognized by EPA for these efforts,” said Michael Poncia, vice president of Customer Operations for Pepco Holdings, which includes Pepco. “Our programs are providing customers with opportunities to take important energy efficiency actions that are helping them save energy and money and are having positive impacts on our environment.”
The Sustained Excellence designation is awarded to companies that continue to exhibit exceptional leadership year-after-year in the ENERGY STAR program, while remaining dedicated to environmental protection through superior energy efficiency achievements.
Pepco, along with sister Exelon utilities, BGE, ComEd, Delmarva Power, and PECO were honored for their continued leadership in protecting the environment through superior energy efficiency achievements at EPA’s awards ceremony held in the District of Columbia last week.
“I applaud the 2019 ENERGY STAR Award Winners,” said Bill Wehrum, EPA assistant administrator for air and radiation. “Their innovation and leadership enhance America’s economic competitiveness. Reducing costly energy waste improves air quality and public health while protecting the environment.”
