Mark Group Implements Greening Your Workforce™at La Salle University
The Mark Group makes energy efficiency upgrades accessible to faculty, staff and alumni, and La Salle is the first University to adopt a program that provides discounted home energy efficiency upgrades
Mark Group, a leading global provider of professional energy efficiency improvements, partnered with La Salle University to the first college in the country to implement its new Greening Your Workforce™ program. Through the program, university faculty, staff and its more than 44,000 alumni are eligible to receive home performance assessments and discounts on energy efficiency upgrades that can reduce monthly home energy costs by up to 20 percent.
Philadelphia-area consumers paid 26.4 percent more for electricity in May than the U.S. average, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. “Furthermore, more than half of the average home’s energy costs are associated with heating and cooling, and with PECO’s residential supply charge increasing by 6 percent on October 1, now is the time for savvy consumers to make home energy efficiency a top priority,” says Jeff Bartos, Mark Group’s CEO. “As the first university to adopt this program, La Salle is setting an example as a leader in sustainability.”
To empower homeowners to take control of their energy costs, Mark Group will arm La Salle’s faculty, staff and alumni with a comprehensive home performance analysis that provides a roadmap of how to save money on their utility bills, live more comfortably, and add value to their homes. Unlike many providers, Mark Group also implements the recommended conservation measures, helping to streamline the process for homeowners. Mark Group will also be offering the La Salle community energy efficiency educational sessions, including an overview of the basics of home performance and building science. Experts will also discuss how cost-effective improvements like air sealing and insulation can immediately reduce monthly energy bills by up to 20 percent.
