Coolerado Wins Green Business of the Year
FOR RELEASE: May 13, 2011
Coolerado was awarded the Green Business of the Year by the Denver Chamber of Commerce on Wednesday, May 4th at the Hyatt Regency Hotel in Downtown Denver.
Manufactures of the world’s most energy efficient air conditioners, Coolerado received the award on the merit of their proven dramatic reduction in energy costs to their clients, product sustainability and carbon footprint reduction, involvement in environmentally-focused community programs and by encouraging customers to see the value in green product choices.
“Traditional air conditioning technology has not changed in the last 100 years and is one of the largest consumers of peak energy during the spring and summer months. Our technology not only saves customers up to 90% on their cooling costs, but it can also deliver 100% fresh air without using chemical refrigerants in the process,” said Tim Heaton, Co-founder of Coolerado.
Coolerado’s green initiatives have also been recently highlighted in a National Geographic study of the National Snow and Ice Data Center (NSIDC) at the University of Colorado, Boulder. NSIDC, a data center tasked with collecting data of the climate effects on snow caps and ice glaciers, is aiming to be the most energy efficient data center in the world. Using Coolerado to cool their data center server rooms, NSIDC is relying on Coolerado to reduce their energy consumption year-round.
The award ceremony hosted over 500 Denver Chamber business members and issued awards in additional categories, including Small Business of the Year, Best Large and Small Non-profits, and Minority-Owned Business of the Year.
Founded in 2004, Coolerado designs, manufactures and markets super-energy-efficient air conditioning systems for light commercial and residential use, based on its proprietary, patented, and proven technology.
