The Battle

The ENERGY STAR® Battle of the Buildings is an annual competition that challenges building owners and managers to reduce energy and water use, and save money over a one-year period. In May, the BGCA All-Stars team placed first in Water Reduction and second in Energy Reduction out of 125 teams from across the country!

Building on that success, we have 13 Boys & Girls Clubs and two Feeding America food banks participating in the 2016 Bootcamp edition of the competition. You can follow their performance on this page and on social media @ENERGYSTARBldgs #ESNBC. Good Luck Teams!
