Universal Compressed Air Partners with ENERGY STAR®

UCA announced it has been accepted to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) ENERGY STAR program as an ENERGY STAR partner. Through its voluntary partnership with the ENERGY STAR Program, UCA will work to improve energy efficiency and fight climate change by helping its commercial building customers implement proven energy-saving strategies designed to enhance the organization’s financial health and preserve the environment for future generations.

UCA has been accepted as an ENERGY STAR partner.

“UCA is pleased to become an ENERGY STAR partner,” said Executive Vice President & COO, Rick Kowey. “Through this partnership, we will demonstrate our commitment to environmental stewardship by delivering energy performance improvements and financial value to our customers.”

In partnership with ENERGY STAR, UCA will help its clients to embed energy management programs, assist compressed air users to achieve ENERGY STAR certification, take action to realize cost savings through energy efficiency projects and increase an organization’s value, lower risk, and deliver other business benefits.

UCA will also encourage businesses to join ENERGY STAR, ensure clients can quantify and maintain savings, support clients with identifying and purchasing ENERGY STAR products and encourage corporate staff to learn about the benefits of energy efficiency.

“Improving the energy efficiency of our nation’s buildings is critical to protecting our environment,” said Cindy Jacobs, Chief of the ENERGY STAR Commercial & Industrial Branch. “From the boiler room to the board room, ENERGY STAR partners are leading the way by making the buildings where we work, play, and learn more efficient.”
