EnergyStar for Congregations

A great site for those parishes that want to use the free Portfolio Manager tool. Input your electric and gas data for the last 12 months, answer a couple of more questions and the PM will spit out a benchmark number that compares your parish with other parishes that are similar in size. Grace fared quite bad due to its old HVAC systems and lack of proper maintenance of the building. After benchmarking the fun begins. Once you dig deeper and are able to make substantial changes of your lighting or HVAC system you will see that number change, hopefully to the better. EnergyStar has some nifty tools to help understand what is needed at the building level and supports parishes with helpful handouts on environmental stewardship.
