BETHLEHEM, PA – Earlier this month, Northampton Community College (NCC) received an Excellence in Energy Award from NRG Energy, Inc (NRG). As the only college to receive the award, NRG honored the College for their leadership in energy efficiency.
The Excellence in Energy Awards recognize energy consumers who demonstrate a strong commitment to the planning and achievement of their environmental and community goals. Since 2008, when the College started a plan to conserve energy, our CO2 emissions from energy usage have gone down by over 20% and energy use overall has been reduced by over 30%.
Executive VP of NRG Energy, Inc., Robert Gaudette, said, “We want to celebrate our customers for their efforts in enhancing their energy solutions. Each award shows how organizations are creating a more sustainable path for both their operations and communities.”
