Metro Lighting’s accomplishments will be recognized by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) at a ceremony in Washington, D.C. on April 20, 2018.
Each year, the EPA and DOE honor a variety of businesses and organizations for their commitment to reducing energy usage, saving money and protecting the environment through superior energy-efficiency achievements. Metro Lighting has been an ENERGY STAR partner since 2008 and is being recognized by the EPA for the ninth time.

“It’s an honor to once again be recognized with the ENERGY STAR Partner of the Year Award,” said Bill Frisella, president of Metro Lighting. “Receiving this prestigious award for a ninth time demonstrates our commitment to improving our energy performance, providing energy-efficient products and reducing our impact on the environment.”
In 2016 alone, ENERGY STAR-certified products, homes, buildings and plants helped Americans save more than $30 billion in energy costs and approximately 400 billion kilowatt-hours of electricity, while achieving broad emissions reductions.
“The 2018 ENERGY STAR Partners of the Year have demonstrated real leadership, showing how American families and businesses can save energy, save money, and reduce air emissions,” said Bill Wehrum, EPA Assistant Administrator for Air and Radiation.
