Canterbury Towers is being recognized by the U.S. Department of Energy for leadership in energy management.

The 100,000-square-foot, 156-unit affordable apartment community has cut energy use by 30 percent and is saving $50,000 per year on its energy costs, thanks to its participation in the Department of Energy’s Better Buildings Challenge. The Tower’s residents also say their apartments are more comfortable, thanks to the upgrades.

The Department of Energy and the Department of Housing and Urban Development will be touring Canterbury Towers from 10 to 11 a.m. Jan. 12.
