NCUA Earns 'Energy Star' Rating
ALEXANDRIA, Va. (7/24/13)--The National Credit Union Administration on Tuesday announced it has received ENERGY STAR certification from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency for its Alexandria headquarters.

ENERGY STAR is a voluntary program that helps businesses and individuals save money and protect the environment through improved energy efficiency.

"NCUA strives to be a leader in the area of environmental responsibility, efficiency and cost savings," NCUA Chairman Debbie Matz said. "Being a model corporate citizen is one of my priorities for NCUA, and receiving the ENERGY STAR certification is a most satisfying accomplishment.

Agency headquarters met all four criteria necessary for ENERGY STAR certification: energy performance, thermal comfort, indoor air quality, and illumination levels. The NCUA surpassed the General Services Administration standard requiring an ENERGY STAR rating of 75 for federal agencies leasing space outside a GSA-owned property. The NCUA rating is 86 on the scale of one to 100.
