About The Green Dot Awards™:

The Green Dot Awards™ strive to reward and promote forward-thinking businesses that
create environmentally friendly products or services, and to reward revolutionary green
proposals.

Recognizing that human activity is causing dramatic environmental change, we must
ensure that we act today to protect tomorrow's environment. Businesses and
organizations have become especially aware of the impact that their practices have on the
well-being of the planet and many are acting to adopt more sustainable attitudes. The
purpose of Green Dot is to reward those who practice excellence in environmental
responsibility.

Although the Green Dot Awards are worthy themselves, they are also a consumer guide
to excellence in environmentally-sustainable practices. A business with a Green Dot
Award is a business that can be trusted by consumers with a stewardship of the
environment. Recognition from the Green Dot Awards allows businesses to promote their
products and services as items that are manufactured and delivered in an environmentally
friendly manner.

About the Winner:
Energy Alternatives, LLC, based out of Connecticut and formed in
2006, provides innovative renewable energy products, systems and solutions to the
marketplace. Its flagship product, The Greenward™ Ridge Vent System, offers builders
and homeowners an inexpensive, unique method of heating a home's hot water,
reducing energy costs and carbon emissions. Unlike competing products, a home already
has most of what The Greenward™ Ridge Vent System relies upon to do its job: a roof, a
ridge vent and an attic. The Greenward™ Ridge Vent harvests hot attic air as it escapes
through the ridge of a home's roof, thermally transferring this previously
unused heat through the system to the home's hot water tank.
