Washington, D.C.  - The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has recognized Pepco as a 2015 ENERGY STAR Partner of the Year winner for outstanding contributions to reducing greenhouse gas emissions by delivering energy efficiency programs, information and services to its customers.  The accomplishments of the company were recognized on April 20 at the Marriott Wardman Park Hotel in Washington, D.C.

Pepco was honored for its entire suite of Demand Side Management Residential and Commercial and Industrial energy efficiency programs for our Maryland customers. These programs also support the EmPOWER Maryland initiative. The winners have been chosen from a vast network of 16,000 ENERGY STAR® partners.

Pepco's residential programs include a lighting program that offers instant in-store discounts on select ENERGY STAR certified CFL bulbs, LED bulbs and lighting fixtures at participating retailers. Also, rebates are offered through programs for purchasing ENERGY STAR certified appliances, upgrading to a high-efficiency cooling or heating system (air conditioner or heat pump) with installation by a participating contractor, scheduling a no-cost quick home energy assessment that also provides simple energy-saving products, or a comprehensive home energy assessment, building ENERGY STAR certified new homes and recycling an old refrigerator or freezer.

"As we celebrate Earth Day, Pepco is proud to be honored for a second consecutive year for its environmental stewardship and helping our customers save money and energy, lower energy costs and learn more about energy efficiency," said Donna Cooper, president Pepco Region. "The ENERGY STAR Partner of the Year Award reflects our continued commitment to improving the quality of life in the communities in which we live and serve."

Pepco is also being recognized as a leader in energy efficiency program delivery through comprehensive outreach, education, and marketing programs as the company works to promote the use of energy-efficient ENERGY STAR certified products and services.
