Four congregations in the New England region were recently recognized for receiving the Energy Star label in 2011.
According to EPA, an Energy Star label indicates that a building operates at least 75 percent more efficiently than the average building in that category.
The recognized congregations are Dennis Union Church, Dennis, Massachusetts; Islamic Society of Boston Cultural Center, Roxbury, Massachusetts; Winchester Unitarian Society, Winchester, Massachusetts; and New England Pentecostal, Pelham, New Hampshire.
“These congregations are setting a solid example of financial and environmental stewardship, said Curt Spalding, regional administrator of EPA’s New England office. “They have successfully reduced their energy use and are showing all houses of worship across New England that environmental stewardship is possible for all sorts of organizations.”
