ENGLEWOOD, N.J. - In furthering its goal to promote the efficient use of energy and lower its cost, Calmac Manufacturing Corp. has joined Rebuild America, a growing network of community-driven voluntary partnerships that foster energy efficiency and renewable energy in commercial and government buildings and public-housing.

According to the company, at the federal level, Rebuild America is the largest, most established technology deployment program within the Department of Energy's Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy. The program's goals are to conserve energy, accelerate use of the best energy technologies, save money, reduce air pollution, lower the United States' reliance on energy imports, help revitalize aging city and town neighborhoods, and create "smart energy" jobs.

Rebuild America's mission is to overcome market barriers that inhibit use of the best technologies. According to the organization, building owners and managers in both the public and private sectors often lack knowledge of the best technologies, financing mechanisms, savings potential, and other benefits.
