If you are interested in earning a 2013 ENERGY STAR certification, please note that to be considered for 2013 ENERGY STAR Certification, applications must be submitted within EPA’s Portfolio Manager by Midnight EST Friday, November 15, 2013. EPA cannot guarantee 2013 ENERGY STAR Certification for any application that is incomplete or has an error that requires action on the part of the applicant. As you may know, the year listed on the ENERGY STAR certification is based on the calendar year during which your application is approved, regardless of the period of performance of the application. Only applications that are received by November 15, 2013 and approved by December 31, 2013 will be awarded the 2013 ENERGY STAR.
Without exception, any application received after November 15, 2013 will not be processed until January 2014 and will therefore only be eligible for 2014 ENERGY STAR certification.
We encourage you to pursue certification for your eligible properties and apply now!
