Cayce, SC (WLTX) - SCE&G has won an award for their efforts to reduce greenhouse emissions.
The U.S Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) gave the company the award this week in Washington, D.C.
SCE&G sponsored consumer education efforts that promote superior energy-efficient products.
Specifically, SCE&G was recognized for its Home Performance with ENERGY STAR program that launched in April 2011. It works to make homes more energy efficient and comfortable.
Customers who participate in the program receive rebates up to $2,500 for making home energy improvements recommended by a Building Performance Institute certified contractor.
Over the last 20 years, with help from ENERGY STAR, American families and businesses have saved more than $230 billion on utility bills and prevented more than 1.8 billion metric tons of greenhouse gas emissions.
