Energy Star Certified Communities

Sunrise’s commitment to environmental stewardship is demonstrated by efficient energy management in our communities. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has certified more than 30 Sunrise communities in the senior care facilities category with the ENERGY STAR award.

The ENERGY STAR certification signifies that these buildings perform in the top 25 percent of similar buildings nationwide for energy efficiency and meet strict performance levels set by the EPA. These communities use an average of 35 percent less energy and release 35 percent less carbon dioxide than typical communities.

To earn the EPA’s ENERGY STAR award, Sunrise focuses on best practices for efficiency in the areas of kitchen and laundry operations, as well as lighting and HVAC&R (Heating Ventilation Air Conditioning and Refrigeration). All of our communities have a comprehensive maintenance program in place to maintain equipment and conserve energy costs. In addition, team members implement energy-efficient best practices in their daily routines to further conserve costs and energy consumption.
