Energy Prize

In 2014, the Greater Farmington Community accepted a challenge—a challenge with a $5 million prize waiting for the winner. To have a chance at winning, we must be among the top energy saving communities over a two year period (2015 and 2016). There are only 52 other communities standing between the Greater Farmington Area and the $5 million Georgetown University Energy Prize.


No one person, group of people or municipal entity will win the energy prize—a community will win. For the Greater Farmington Area to emerge victorious, we need the entire Community to compete. Every resident has the ability to help us win. In the end, you save money on your energy bills, reduce your impact on the environment, and help position the Greater Farmington Community to bring home the $5 million Energy Prize.
