ACTR Wins Energy Efficiency Design Award
Addison County Economic Development Corporation (ACEDC) member Addison County Transit Resources (ACTR) was recently honored by fellow ACEDC member Efficiency Vermont with a 2017 Best of the Best Award. This merit award, in the small building new commercial contruction category, recognizes ACTR for the Addison County Community Transportation Center (CTC) as an outstanding example of energy efficient commercial new construction.
The CTC, which opened in 2013, embodies ACTR’s commitment to sustainability and financial stewardship. Its 2015 solar array installation was preceded by numerous other sustainable design features which minimize the CTC’s energy consumption and earned ACTR an Innovative Green Transit Initiative Award from the Federal Transit Administration in 2013.
Efficiency Vermont was created to help all Vermonters reduce energy costs, strengthen the economy, and protect Vermont’s environment.

The awards recognize high achievement by architects, engineers, builders, and contractors using energy efficiency and sustainability practices to construct or renovate Vermont buildings.
