Church of the Advent, Cincinnati, recently received a very recognizable award for being energy efficient. Our church has been recognized as an Energy Star certified building. This program is run by the US Environmental Protection Agency and recognizes the most energy efficient buildings in the United States. The process includes submitting info on energy consumption, the size of the church and attaining verification from an engineer. There is a minimum score requirement of 75 to pass the certification. Advent proudly attained Energy Star certification as a house of worship with a score of 84, making our church building one of three congregations in Ohio (and the only one in Cincinnati) with that recognition!
