EPA and Detroit 2030 District Partner

In January 2021, EPA partnered with the Detroit 2030 District to host a House of Worship Energy Star Treasure Hunt Competition to find opportunities to save energy and fight climate change. The competition also included internal water and wastewater reduction strategies. Six local churches participated in the 6-month friendly rival to make improvements in their worship facilities and benchmark their monthly energy use with EPA’s Portfolio Manager tool. Throughout the competition, churches received encouragement from coaches, tips on saving energy and funding opportunities from industry experts by way of monthly presentations. The competition culminated with a celebration and recognition from the Detroit 2030 District and EPA. Click here to read the article posted on the EPA's site.
