WOMEN MAKING AN IMPACT AWARD

Bonnie Hagen was honored for leading Bright Energy Services in analyzing more than 10,000,000 sq. ft. of building space and identifying and implementing energy efficiency and environmental enhancement projects that reduced greenhouse gas emissions by 4,666 tons of carbon dioxide, which is the same as taking 882 passenger vehicles off the road or saving 3,470 acres of forests. These actions resulted in tens of millions of dollars in value to her clients, from reduced utility costs and the securing of financial incentives from municipalities, the utilities and other granting agencies.
