PQI Distribution TransFilter TM Harmonic Mitigating Transformers (HMT) and/or e-Rated® Transformers and LEED® Certification Categories
Because buildings consume more than one third of the nation’s energy and water resources, reducing their environmental footprint can play a significant role in reaching sustainability and climate goals. Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED®) is a voluntary, building rating system that provides a framework and guidance on sustainable design, construction and maintenance practices for structures.
Sponsored by the US Green Building Council and adopted by the Canadian Green Building Council, the LEED rating system emphasizes state-of-the-art strategies for sustainable development under six categories: Sustainable Sites, Water Efficiency, Energy and Atmosphere, Materials and Resources, Indoor Environmental Quality and Innovative Design. By meeting specific targets and prerequisites, buildings can be certified to one of four levels – Certified, Silver, Gold or Platinum, depending on the extent to which the building incorporates environmental features and practices.
