The Commonwealth ranks high among its peers nationally for energy conservation.
According to a Boston Business Journal report, two Bay State buildings, the JFK Building in Boston, and the J.C. Penney in Peabody, stood above its competition in terms of energy conservation.
The BBJ details the criteria, “competitors tracked their building’s monthly energy consumption using EPA’s online energy tracking tool. Energy use reductions for each top finisher were verified. Energy use in commercial buildings accounts for nearly 20 percent of total U.S. greenhouse gas emissions at a cost of more than $100 billion per year.”
