Farmington Hills and Farmington have joined together to compete for the $5 million Georgetown University Energy Prize (GUEP) to prove that this community is the best in the country when it comes to reducing energy usage.
The competition has a new slogan for the Greater Farmington $5 Million Energy Prize Challenge – “Putting Our Energy Where It Counts!” This new slogan and accompanying logo symbolize the unity and forward thinking behind the two communities coming together with a common goal of enhancing the wellbeing of the community, the environment, and the future.
“The primary goal of this challenge is to help implement energy efficiency measures so that residents can lower their utility bills, save money, and make their homes more comfortable,” said Nate Geinzer, Assistant to the Farmington Hills City Manager. “By joining forces, the community will demonstrate a commitment to a more sustainable and environmentally conscious future and put Farmington Hills and Farmington in a position to take home the $5 million prize.”
Community members are being asked to help spread the word by liking the Farmington Hills/Farmington Energy Prize on Facebook, following the effort on Twitter @FHFEnergyPrize, and by telling friends and encouraging neighborhood associations to get involved.
