Stingy with the energy

WATERTOWN

The Tufts Health Plan Campus in Watertown has earned a gold star on its report card.

According to a statement issued by the New England Regional office of the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), Tufts Health Plan is the only health care provider in Massachusetts to earn the Energy Star label for superior energy performance.

According to the EPA, the Tufts Health Plan building uses almost one-third less energy than similar buildings, saving more than half a million dollars annually in energy expenses.
