Comments Off on Students Help McDonald’s, Target, Dunkin’ Donuts, Others Save $650 Million on Energy Costs

Monumental news this morning – the Environmental Defense Fund’s 2011 Climate Corps fellows have identified a whopping $650 million in energy savings for companies like McDonald’s, Target and others across the US. The Corps matches specially-trained MBA and MPA students with organizations, universities and cities to help them identify ways to cut energy use and save money. This summer 96 fellows and organizations were a part of the program and the savings were huge: 600 million kilowatt hours of electricity and 27 million therms of natural gas annually. These reductions will be directly responsible for removing 440,000 metric tons of annual CO2 emissions from the atmosphere — the same reduction as taking 87,000 vehicles off the road.
