The Port of Oakland has received its tenth consecutive Energy Star award for their headquarters building from the United States Environmental Protection Agency (US-EPA).
The US-EPA annually recognizes buildings around the nation for energy efficiencies. Energy Star Award recipients must rank among the top 25% of most energy efficient buildings in the market based on factors including building systems, operational hours, climate controls, equipment scheduling, and equipment monitoring. The Port headquarters building ranked in the top 18% of US-EPA benchmarked facilities nationwide by implementing energy-saving measures such as modernized heating and cooling systems that consume less power.
“This recognition reflects our ongoing commitment to being a strong environmental advocate,” said Port of Oakland Director of Environmental Programs and Planning Richard Sinkoff.
