Several Connecticut firms are being singled out by the state for managing to cut their energy use last summer. State energy and environmental officials recognized the firms from nine towns today at the state Capitol.
The companies all cut power consumption by at least five percent compared to previous years.
The Platinum Award for the most outstanding achievement in energy savings from amongst all of the awardees and the Environmental Award for the greatest reduction in CO2 greenhouse gas went to Danbury-based Ethan Allen. The honorees hail from Beacon Falls, Danbury, Fairfield, New Canaan, Woodbury and elsewhere.
