WASHINGTON, D.C. – (RealEstateRama) — The City of Chandler was recognized during the Salt River Project (SRP) Champions of Energy Efficiency Awards event held on Tuesday, Oct. 18. During the third annual event, SRP honored businesses for their participation in the company’s commercial energy efficiency rebate and ENERGY STAR® Homes programs and for going “above and beyond” in their efforts to create a culture of conservation and stewardship within their organizations.
“Sustainability is part of the City’s fabric,” said Mayor Jay Tibshraeny. “In addition to the cost benefits that are passed on to our residents through SRP’s rebate programs, preserving natural resources is a win for the entire community.”
As a champion of energy efficiency, Chandler continues its reputation as the innovation and technology hub of the Southwest. The state’s fourth-largest city is rich in diversity, family fun and progressive entrepreneurship. Sustainability and energy efficiency are integral themes in the city of Chandler’s General Plan, Utility Master Plans and city policies. Power and water are absolute essentials that any thriving city must provide, and to be most effective, city leaders say a partnership with SRP has been critical. Chandler is one of the first 10 communities to be certified by STAR (Sustainability Tools for Assessing & Rating Communities).
