The Louisville Energy Alliance is proud of the progress that Louisville businesses have made over the past few years. Since 1999, over 85 building owners have certified their facilities through the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s ENERGY STAR program.
In 2018, Louisville was placed back on the EPA’s list of the top 25 cities with the most ENERGY STAR buildings, totalling 89. This extraordinary effort has not only saved Louisville businesses millions of dollars in energy expenses, it has also helped reduce greenhouse gas emissions and positioned the gateway to the south as an environmentally friendly place to live and work.
In 2010, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency named the Louisville-Jefferson County Metro Government an ENERGY STAR Partner of the Year for launching the Kilowatt Crackdown [link to Kilowatt Crackdown on our website], forming the LEA, promoting the use of ENERGY STAR’s
Portfolio Manager, and training building owners and managers on ways to reduce energy consumption.
