Portfolio Manager (Energy Star)
Energy Star, sponsored by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), uses Portfolio Manager as a valuable tool for rating your building. Portfolio Manager is going through some major changes—making it easier than ever to use and receive an Energy Star rating for facilities. Achieving this rating is a key first step in greening your facility and discovering areas of success and areas of weakness.
A Plaque of Recognition is received with a 75 and above rating. A rating under 75 identifies onsite staff issues you can focus on to achieve Energy Star.
Energy Star is a fantastic first step to an eventual LEED certification, and is strongly recommended as a starting point.
