Dear Mr. Spalding:

     With this letter, joins EPA New England’s Community Energy Challenge and becomes an EPA ENERGY STAR partner. We are making a commitment to

    protect the environment through the continuous improvement of our energy performance. We

    believe that an energy management strategy for our municipal buildings and facilities will aid in

    preserving the environment and help us enhance our financial health for future generations. In

    partnership with EPA, we will specifically:

    Benchmark with Portfolio Manager the energy performance of all municipal buildings

    in our community

     Set a goal to reduce energy use in municipal buildings by 10% or more

    Create a local energy committee

     Promote energy efficiency in our community

    We understand that our commitment to assess and improve the energy performance of our

    community is supported by the strategic resources and tools offered through the Community

    Energy Challenge. In addition, we are aware that both ENERGY STAR and the Community

    Energy Challenge present opportunities to be recognized for success. To be eligible for

    recognition, we will share with EPA our progress and milestone achievements.

<Community name> looks forward to our partnership with EPA.
