Ascension and Holy Trinity, Wyoming, was one of three recipients of the first-ever Wyoming Green Business Awards at the City Council meeting on May 20.

With help from Ohio Interfaith Power and Light and HVAC consultant Tom Williams of Christ Church, Glendale, the AH&T Green Team selected several strategies to reduce the parish’s carbon footprint. As they implemented expensive retrofits, the parish received significant rebates through Ohio’s energy efficiency programs.

Shown above are members of the parish Green Team receiving the award from City Council members Sarah Stankorb, an environmental journalist and chair of Wyoming’s Environmental Stewardship Commission, and Katie Stock. Green Team reps are (left to right) Rich Gómez, Carol Ostrander-Gómez, and Ariel Miller.
