In the U.S., residential and commercial buildings account for nearly 40% of the country’s carbon dioxide emissions. Green buildings, like those that are Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certified, are critical in reducing these harmful emissions and waste; conserving water; and lowering exposure to toxins. energyware™, a leading national provider of energy efficiency technology, plays a pivotal role in helping organizations achieve a clean energy future through its variety of offerings.
energyware™ reduces and/or eliminates electricity, water, and gas bills for its clients through its energy efficiency technology, including solar and LED smart lighting.

The company’s LED smart lighting solutions also can preserve and improve employee health while yielding significant energy savings at the same time.
“At energyware™, we’re proud to serve as a partner to organizations as they embark on their journey to achieving LEED certification,” said Jon Novaro, energyware™. “Our robust portfolio of offerings lays the framework for energy-efficient, cost-saving green buildings which, in turn, helps create a cleaner energy future for everyone.”
As the workforce continues to return to the office following the COVID-19 pandemic, providing employee incentives like health and safety is a top priority for most companies. LEED certification is not only beneficial from an economic perspective, as it generates energy efficiency savings, but it also creates a healthier environment for those occupying a facility. These appealing employee health benefits include cleaner air, access to daylight, and avoiding the harmful chemicals often found in paints and finishings.
To achieve LEED certification, a project earns points by adhering to prerequisites and credits that address carbon, energy, waste, transportation, materials, health, and indoor environmental quality. Projects then go through a verification and review process by Green Business Certification Inc. (GBCI) and are awarded points that correspond to a level of LEED certification, with Platinum being the top tier with more than 80 points earned.
