Middlebury has consulted with Efficiency Vermont on a number of construction projects, including a new library that is currently under construction, a new dining and residence hall, and a chilled water plant.“This is the most prestigious award that Efficiency Vermont gives out each year. Middlebury College won because it is an outstanding partner in energy efficiency and a leader in the field. Middlebury incorporates environmental responsiveness and sustainability into the evaluation of every project,” said Hamilton.During the award presentation, the College was also cited for its efforts to prevent pollution, conserve water and reduce waste.“Once our new library is completed, Middlebury College will save $35,000 in energy costs annually due to energy efficiency measures regarding building construction and lighting. Thanks to Efficiency Vermont’s suggestions, we will not only save money annually, but we will also reduce our yearly production of carbon dioxide by 500,000 pounds,” said Middlebury College Executive Vice President of Facilities Planning David Ginevan.Accepting the award on behalf of the College were Ginevan, Project Manager Thomas McGinn, and Central Heating Plant Manager Michael Moser. The awards ceremony took place at Efficiency Vermont’s annual conference, which was held Feb. 11-12 in South Burlington.Contact for a photo: Sarah Ray at [email protected](link sends e-mail).last_img read more

The winger scored 40 seconds into the frame and added another marker seven minutes later — his fourth of the postseason — to give Dallas a 3-1 lead. Seguin added his goal 15:54 into the period to put the Stars ahead 4-2. All three scores in the period were assisted by Benn, who tied a postseason record held by many.
