A Milford hotel was recently given an Energy Star designation for its display exemplary conservation of energy.
The Milford Courtyard Marriott on Fortune Boulevard won the distinction.
The New England office of the EPA estimates that the 12 Massachusetts Marriott hotels given the Energy Star designation saved an amount of energy comparable to taking 1,700 cars off the road for a year.
That's 17 million pounds of carbon dioxide emissions prevented.
The Energy Star program was created in 1992. The EPA estimates that American consumers saved more than $12 billion through its efforts last year.
