TNMP Earns 2023 ENERGY STAR® Market Leader Award
TNMP is proud to announce that it has earned a 2023 ENERGY STAR® Market Leader Award from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) in recognition of its Residential New Construction Program, for incentivizing over 50 energy-efficient new homes that have earned ENERGY STAR certification.
“We’re proud to be an ENERGY STAR partner, and of the results of our High-Performance Homes program,” said Stefani Case, manager of energy efficiency. “These results play an important role in helping our customers to stretch their energy dollars.”
ENERGY STAR certified homes are at least 10% more energy efficient than those built to code and achieve a 20% improvement on average while providing homeowners with better quality, performance, and comfort.
The Market Leader Award recognizes partners participating in EPA’s ENERGY STAR Residential New Construction program who have made a significant positive impact in energy-efficient construction and environmental protection by building or verifying at least 50 ENERGY STAR certified homes and apartments, or by sponsoring a local program that supported these activities, over the past year. More than 136,000 ENERGY STAR certified single-family homes and multifamily units were built in 2022, for a total exceeding 2.3 million since 1995.
“We congratulate our 2023 Market Leader Award winners for their demonstrable leadership in bringing energy efficiency to the forefront of the residential new construction sector,” said Jonathan Passe, Chief of the ENERGY STAR Residential Branch. “ENERGY STAR offers proven whole-house approach that is transforming the residential market to a higher standard of construction quality while protecting the environment for all.”
