September 13, 2011

The Mon Power Regional Headquarters in Fairmont, West Virginia has been LEED™ Certified, as established by the U.S. Green Building Council and verified by the Green Building Certification Institute (GBCI). LEED is the nation’s preeminent program for the design, construction and operation of high performance green buildings.

The project team achieved LEED certification for energy use, lighting water and material use as well as incorporating a variety of other sustainable strategies. By using less energy and water, LEED certified buildings save money for families, businesses and tax payers; reduces greenhouse gas emissions; and contributes to a healthier environment for residents, workers and the larger community.

“With each new LEED-certified building, we get one step closer to USGBC’s vision of a sustainable built environment within a generation,” said Rick Fedrizzi, President, CEO & Founding Chair, U.S. Green Building Council. “As the newest member of the LEED family of green buildings, Mon Power Regional Headquarters is an important addition to the growing strength of the green building movement.”
