For Immediate Release
Snowmass Village, Colo. – August 7, 2017 – On Monday, August 7th, the Town Environmental Advisory Board (EAB) will present Bill Striegler, Facilities Director of the Timbers Club, with the 2017 Environmental Leadership Award. The EAB also recognized Bill Striegler and the Timbers Club earlier this summer at AREDAY.
Bill Striegler was chosen among several nominees to be the sole recipient of the 2017 award for his trailblazing efforts to increase the energy efficiency of the Timbers Club. After implementing a series of energy efficiency upgrades in 2015, the Timbers Club realized a 55,000 kWh savings, and the 5 year average energy consumption for the facility is down 13%. This not only results in energy savings, but it results in significant utility bill savings for the Timbers Club and their residents.
The nomination form for Bill Striegler highlights his dedication to saving energy:
Bill’s decision to transition to LED lighting began before this work was cool, when selecting the right bulbs and fixtures required precision. Today, the improvements in the cost and quality of LED lights have led to more widespread adoption. That was not always the case, especially for luxury lighting as seen at the Timbers.
We want to applaud Bill for sticking his neck out for this new energy efficient technology back in 2012, and for continuing to do so. He always has more efficiency projects on tap, with 2017 being no exception.
The award will be officially presented to Bill during tonight's regular Town Council meeting, which begins at 4:00 pm at the Snowmass Village Town Hall.
The Environmental Leadership Award was created in 2012 as a way to spotlight community best practices in environmental sustainability. The award is intended to not only recognize local leaders for their efforts, but we spotlight their actions so they can be replicated by other individuals and businesses in Snowmass Village.
Nominations for the 2018 award will accepted by the Town beginning in November, 2017. The nomination form and additional details about the selection criteria, background, and past recipients can be found online at www.tosv.com
