Soft-Lite Windows has been recognized by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) as a winner of the 2016 Energy Star Partner of the Year Sustained Excellence Award for its continued superior energy efficiency achievements. This is the third consecutive year that Soft-Lite has achieved Partner of the Year recognition from Energy Star, moving the company up to the Sustained Excellence level of award. Soft-Lite will be recognized on April 13 in Washington, D.C., for its leadership in manufacturing products that earn the Energy Star label.

Soft-Lite’s achievements this past year included the development of a brand-new Energy Star Marketing Collection — an array of customizable marketing and sales aides designed to make it easier for Soft-Lite dealers to help educate consumers about the Energy Star windows program and encourage them to purchase Energy Star-certified Soft-Lite windows. Another key achievement was adding 32 new Energy Star-certified hurricane products.

“By continued collaboration with Energy Star, Soft-Lite is helping Americans save money, save energy, and do their part to reduce our nation’s greenhouse gas emissions that exacerbate climate change,” said EPA Administrator Gina McCarthy. “I’m proud to recognize Soft-Lite with the highest form of Energy Star recognition, as the winner of the 2016 Partner of the Year – Sustained Excellence Award. Soft-Lite demonstrates a strong commitment to energy efficiency and to preserving a healthy planet for future generations.”

“We’re proud—and honored—to achieve national recognition from the EPA for the third year in a row, and to reach the most prestigious level of Sustained Excellence” said Tyson Schwartz, Soft-Lite’s chief sales and marketing officer. “Energy Star is an integral part of Soft-Lite’s business—it’s become the cornerstone of our commitment to energy efficiency. It’s exciting to see the impact we’ve made by producing not only the best, most innovative windows and doors in the industry—but the most energy-efficient products available. We also place great emphasis on educational and training materials to ensure that our employees, dealers and consumers have a clear understanding of the Energy Star program and the benefits that energy-efficient products provide. We remain committed to continuing our work to help reduce greenhouse gas emissions and protect the environment.”
