Edgetech IG Inc. customer Precision Entry has been named ENERGY STAR 2006 Partner of the Year by the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the Department of Energy (DOE). Steel and fiberglass door manufacturer Precision, based in Sugarcreek, Ohio, was chosen for its outstanding contribution to reducing greenhouse gas emissions by manufacturing and educating consumers about energy-efficient products. In 2005, Precision began manufacturing all its entry door systems as ENERGY STAR qualified. All of Precisions doors are made with Super Spacer® for increased thermal efficiency.
ENERGY STAR is the US equivalent of the UK’s Energy Saving Trust. It works in partnership with the DOE to help businesses and consumers save energy and protect the environment. Last year, with the help of ENERGY STAR, Americans saved $12 billion on their energy bills and enough energy to power 28 million homes.
The Partner of the Year Award is given to manufacturers and retailers that successfully promote and deliver ENERGY STAR qualified products, saving consumers money and reducing greenhouse gas emissions. Award winners are selected from thousands of organisations that participate in the ENERGY STAR program each year.
