(Seattle, Washington – Feb. 14, 2008) Forty-seven commercial buildings and manufacturing plants in Idaho, Oregon, and Washington have earned the 2007 Energy Star label. Energy Star is a program for top-performing buildings that have made powerful cuts to their energy bills and greenhouse gas emissions.

“We applaud the efforts taken to make these buildings models of energy efficiency,” said EPA Regional Administrator Elin Miller. “Energy conservation leadership in the public and commercial building sector is helping keep the Pacific Northwest at the forefront of the national effort to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.”

The new buildings, listed below, join more than 4,000 buildings nationwide that have earned the Energy Star label, saving more than 25 billion pounds of carbon dioxide emissions.
