EPA lauds Four Seasons Produce for energy use

The EPA highlighted the produce distribution facility of Ephrata, Pa.-based Four Seasons Produce Inc., as being one of two Pennsylvania buildings identified as “energy champions.”

The EPA credits Four Seasons with having the first Energy Star-labeled warehouse in the U.S., Ron Carkoski, Four Season’s president and chief executive officer, said in a news release.

“We’re pleased to be part of this milestone in the history of Energy Star,” he said in the release.

According to Four Seasons, Energy Star-labeled buildings typically use 35% less energy and emit 35% less carbon dioxide into the atmosphere compared to other buildings.
