When Ford launched the MyEnergi Lifestyle Retrofit Contest, the goal was to find a family that showed others how a typical American family can afford to live an energy-efficient lifestyle, and the Sattlers of Parker, CO do just that.
Lindsay and Ben Sattler make a concerted effort to keep their home running as green as possibly. Ben even teaches courses on alternative fuels and home energy efficiency to inner-city students. That was one of the main reasons Lindsay wrote the submission essay, and it has paid off big time.
The Sattlers have won a brand-new 2013 Ford C-MAX Energi, new Whirlpool brand appliances, a SunPower solar system and other products design to promote greener living. Combining all of these prizes will create a supremely energy efficient home.
“By combining the latest technologies such as the Ford C-MAX Energi plug-in hybrid, energy-efficient appliances and renewable energy generation, the Sattler family should see up to a 60 percent reduction in energy costs and a 55 percent reduction in CO2,” said Mike Tinskey, global director of vehicle electrification and infrastructure for Ford, in a press release.
That Sattlers couldn’t be happier. “Winning the MyEnergi Lifestyle Retrofit contest is truly life-changing for us,” said Lindsay Sattler. “Now, we have the freedom to bless others with the money we’re saving, and more opportunities to live out what my husband teaches to his students.”
