2021 Chapter Challenge Canceled

In light of COVID-19, we have made the difficult decision to cancel the 2021 Energy to Care Chapter Challenge (based on 2020 energy data). This is a nationwide challenge, and we would be unable to fairly compare the chapter data since some chapters are in more highly impacted areas than others.

We base our comparison on data that has been weather normalized, but we cannot pandemic normalize in the same way. We appreciate the time and effort you put into participating in this challenge and into addressing energy efficiency in health care, and we look forward to relaunching the challenge for 2022.

 

More information will be coming on the Elite Status Requirements and the 2022 Chapter Challenge.
