Thanks to fantastic reviews from our wonderful supporters, volunteers, and those who depend on our services, EESI has won the GreatNonprofits' “2012 Top Rated” award, one of only 1 percent of eligible nonprofits to be so honored. GreatNonprofits—now the lead provider of nonprofit reviews and ratings—allows people to review and rate their experiences with nonprofits. EESI is honored to be Top Rated for the second year in a row; this honor helps more people find out about EESI’s work for clean energy.
EESI has received an array of spectacular reviews for its work on sustainable energy—nearly all reviewers have given us Five Stars, the highest rating. EESI's reviews complimented a range of its activities, including its congressional briefings, research, and newsletters, as well as the fantastic learning opportunities it provides through the Richard L. Ottinger internship program.
One reviewer writes, "After 4 years in the environmental field, I have yet to see any group of people devote the amount of time, energy, research, and standard of excellence that EESI delivers on a daily basis. They are a constant presence on the Hill and in the offices of Senators and Congressman on both sides of the aisle." Another complimented EESI's ability to "pull diverse groups of people together, public and private; national, regional, or state; left, right, or middle; to lay the foundation for widespread adoption of clean energy and energy efficiency." User Sterling123 noted, "It's not every day you find a small organization that is capable of making big waves in the policy world."
The 2012 top-rated list will be featured this holiday season in media outlets such as the Huffington Post, TakePart, and Parade Magazine. The list will also be distributed to over 2,000 corporate foundations.
Thank you to everyone who wrote a review—you help make our work possible!
