Goodwill Manasota Recognized for Energy Efficiency Efforts

Coconut Telegraph

 In June, Goodwill Manasota was the beneficiary of lighting upgrades from Florida Power & Light Company (FPL) at its Selby/Newtown location in North Sarasota. For this endeavor, Goodwill Manasota was recognized with the Florida Public Service Commission’s (PSC) Triple E Award, a quarterly recognition for outstanding energy efficiency efforts. The services and upgrades to the Selby/Newtown facility were donated through FPL’s Nonprofit Energy Makeover Program. Goodwill’s new LED lighting, valued at $4,500, is brighter and uses less energy, while producing less heat. This enables the air-conditioning system to cool more efficiently, particularly during the summer months. The lighting upgrades are expected to save the organization more than $1,200 annually - funds that can now be diverted to support its mission services.
