PSO RECOGNIZED WITH 2009 ENERGY STAR® LEADERSHIP IN HOUSING AWARD

Public Service Company of Oklahoma (PSO), a subsidiary of American Electric Power (NYSE: AEP), is pleased to announce that it has been recognized by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) with a 2009 ENERGY STAR Leadership In Housing Award. This award recognizes PSO’s efforts to promote energy-efficient construction and environmental protection by sponsoring an ENERGY STAR for New Homes program in its service area.
 
PSO will receive the award at a June 25 ENERGY STAR workshop, which will be held at the PSO headquarters building in downtown Tulsa.
 
To earn the ENERGY STAR, a home must meet strict guidelines for energy efficiency set by EPA. These homes are at least 15 percent more energy efficient than homes built to local code, and include additional energy-saving features that typically make them 20-30 percent more efficient than standard homes.
 
PSO is committed to helping our customers save energy,” said Kathy Champion, PSO manager of consumer programs. “Through our partnership with ENERGY STAR and participating builders, our customers can be confident that the ENERGY STAR certified homes they buy will not only save energy, but also help them manage their energy costs, and help protect our environment.”
 
ENERGY STAR qualified homes offer homebuyers all the features they want in a new home, plus energy-saving features like effective insulation systems, high performance windows, tight construction and ducts, properly-sized and installed efficient heating and cooling equipment, efficient products and third-party verification.
 
“EPA is privileged to work with a diverse group of utilities, state programs, and home builder associations who effectively support ENERGY STAR Qualified Homes,” said Sam Rashkin, National Director of ENERGY STAR for Homes. “Thanks to the leadership of these sponsors, home buyers across the country have greater access to ENERGY STAR Qualified Homes that cost less to own while improving comfort, indoor air quality, durability, and our environment.”
 
Rashkin will be in Tulsa for the June 25 ENERGY STAR workshop and along with PSO, will present awards to program partners Home Creations; Landmark Fine Homes, LP; PMC Homes; Rausch Coleman Homes of Tulsa, LLC; Simmons Homes; EERO and Guaranteed Watt Saver Systems, Inc.
