March 26, 2024

CHARLESTON, W.Va., March 26, 2024 – Appalachian Power announced today that its Energy Efficiency Department received the 2024 ENERGY STAR Partner of the Year for Sustained Excellence Award from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). This award is reserved for ENERGY STAR partners who demonstrate outstanding leadership year over year.

"We have partnered with ENERGY STAR for many years to enhance our energy efficiency program offerings and continue to find new ways to incorporate its products and services into those programs," said Tammy Stafford, energy efficiency & consumer programs manager. "We look forward to the ENERGY STAR awards every year and appreciate the visibility that winning an award gives our EE programs."

The ENERGY STAR program annually honors a select group of businesses and organizations that have contributed to energy efficiency and the transition to a clean energy economy. ENERGY STAR award winners lead their industries in producing, selling, and adopting energy-efficient products, homes, buildings, services, and strategies. These efforts have saved more than five trillion kilowatt-hours of electricity over the past 30 years.

"President Biden's Investing in America agenda creates an unprecedented opportunity to build a clean energy economy, and private sector partners through programs like ENERGY STAR are leading the way," said EPA Administrator Michael S. Regan. I congratulate this year's ENERGY STAR award winners for their innovation and leadership in delivering cost-effective energy-efficient solutions that create jobs, address climate change and contribute to a healthier environment for all."

Winners are selected from a network of thousands of ENERGY STAR partners. For a complete list of 2024 winners and more information about ENERGY STAR's awards program, visit energystar.gov/awardwinners.
