1996: A Regional First

The Southface Energy and Environmental Resource Center – the South’s first ENERGY STAR-certified building- opens in time for the 1996 Summer Olympic Games with funding support from U.S. Department of Energy, James B. Whitehead Foundation, The Home Depot and Oglethorpe Power.

  • "I chose to work for Southface because they always did a great job and for many years were the sole repository of knowledge in this area."
