(NEWMARKET, NH)—Chinburg Properties is proud to announce that it has received the 2021 ENERGY STAR Partner of the Year—Sustained Excellence Award from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the U.S. Department of Energy for 4 years in a row.

The Sustained Excellence award is the highest honor bestowed by the ENERGY STAR program. Winners are part of a distinguished group that has made a long-term commitment to fighting climate change and protecting public health through energy efficiency. They are among the nation’s leaders in driving value for the environment, the economy, and the American people.

“We are so proud to be recognized among national companies such as LG, Corning, Hanes Brands, Staples, Raytheon, Kohl’s, Colgate-Palmolive and Canon. We committed to building all of all Chinburg homes to Energy Star standards in 2004, and have moved beyond that to Smart Home packages in many of our communities. Our customers can feel the difference in the comfort, quality and can see the impact in their energy bills. Building to these high standards is a big part of why we love what we do,” says Karen Breen, Sales Manager for Chinburg Single Family Homes.

“ENERGY STAR award-winning partners are showing the world that delivering real climate solutions makes good business sense and promotes job growth,” said EPA Administrator Michael S. Regan. “Many of them have been doing it for years, inspiring all of us who are committed to tackling the climate crisis and leading the way to a clean energy economy.”

Winners are selected from a network of thousands of ENERGY STAR partners. Chinburg was one of only 12 builders in the nation to receive the Sustained Excellence award. For a complete list of 2021 winners and more information about ENERGY STAR’s awards program, visit
