We're working with our dealers to slash energy consumption

Honda’s commitment to the environment extends well beyond our fuel-efficient vehicles. Our “Green Dealer” Program helps Honda and Acura automobile dealers measurably reduce the environmental impact of their operations. Dealers who implement our "Green Dealer” program are eligible to receive the Honda/Acura Environmental Leadership Award.

Honda’s “Green Dealer” Guide is a roadmap for Honda and Acura dealerships across the United States to quantifiably reduce their energy and water consumption. While it was developed with our dealerships in mind, this comprehensive guide can be used by any business owner interested in lowering their energy costs and reducing their environmental impact.

Honda is providing the “Green Dealer” Guide as a free download. You don’t have to be an auto dealership to benefit from this comprehensive guide. Get the guide now.

Why it Matters

Buildings account for around 39% of U.S. energy consumption and CO2 emissions, more than any other source.

Auto dealerships, with their showrooms, service centers, car washes and body shops, consume significant amounts of energy. But existing energy efficiency guidelines don’t take into account their unique needs.

Honda developed and tested an energy reduction program tuned specifically for dealerships to help them achieve verifiable reductions in energy use, including a path to achieving zero net energy use, while significantly lowering operating costs.

We’re releasing the guide so the 17,000+ dealerships across all brands in the United States can take advantage of what we’ve learned.

A Model “Green Dealer”how to reduce energy consumption by 50% or more.

Solar Power

Solar panels provide a cost-effective, renewable energy source for dealerships. They can be installed on rooftops or on carports. Electric grid neutral Honda dealers generate as much electricity from on-site solar panels as they consume, when averaged over a year.

Efficient rooftop heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) equipment with advanced controls

Heating and cooling represents one of the largest energy loads at dealerships. In addition to energy efficient equipment, advanced programmable thermostats, if appropriately used, help maximize savings.

Light reflective surfaces

When solar rays strike a dark rooftop, most of the energy is absorbed in the form of heat. Light colored “cool roofs” reflect more sunlight and absorb less heat, reducing building cooling needs. Similarly, using light reflective concrete instead of dark colored asphalt for exterior parking lots and walkways helps keep paved surfaces cooler, which can help reduce the amount of energy used to cool nearby buildings.

Rain capture system

Captured rainwater can be used for irrigation, toilet flushing, or vehicle washing, significantly reducing potable water use.

Skylights with daylighting controls

Strategically placed skylights fill dealerships with bright, natural sunlight that makes cars look great and creates a good working environment for employees. Daylighting controls ensure the lights are dimmed or turned off when there is abundant natural daylight in the building.

EV charging

By providing electric charging and other alternative refueling sources on-site, dealers provide a valuable service to drivers while promoting the use of alternative fuel vehicles.

Energy efficient windows

Dealerships typically have extensive windows in the showroom and other areas. Selecting windows with efficient insulation and low solar heat gain values helps reduce heating and cooling loads and costs. Interior automatic shades provide shading, which can reduce cooling costs.

LED lighting with automatic controls

LED lighting has advanced significantly in recent years, making it possible to illuminate showrooms, parking lots, and all other areas with beautiful, high-quality light. LED lighting is 60-80% more efficient and produces significantly less heat than metal halide lamps, reducing maintenance costs and extending lamp lifetimes to 10+ years.

Native landscaping

Native and drought resistant plants minimize or eliminate the need for watering and reduce landscaping maintenance and costs.

Efficient water fixtures & recycled water car wash

Water-efficient fixtures such as low-flow toilets, urinals, and restroom faucets can save water and money. To minimize potable water usage in a car wash while keeping cars shiny and clean, recycled water is used in the early rinses and in the high-pressure washer.

Recycling & waste reduction

Hundreds, if not thousands, of people walk through dealerships every day. The provision of well-marked recycling bins helps eliminate waste sent to landfills, and waste reduction measures can save on trash bills.

High-speed garage doors

High-speed garage doors help keep climate-controlled indoor environments comfortable and help reduce leakage of conditioned air in service bays during heating or cooling seasons.

How it works - Steps to becoming a “Green Dealer”

Data Collection & Tracking

You can’t manage what you don’t measure. Electricity, natural gas and water consumption must be tracked and recorded on a monthly basis to identify trends and changes over time.

Environmental Assessment & Expert Advice

An energy efficiency expert performs an assessment and prepares improvement recommendations with a simple payback.


The recommended measures can be implemented on-site in less than a day, or over a period of a few months if larger capital investment projects are required.

Performance Tracking & Verification

Post-implementation performance tracking verifies that the desired energy savings have been achieved.

Highest Impact Improvement Areas


Lighting accounts for around 25% of a dealership’s total energy consumption. Automatic controls and energy efficient lighting technologies can cut this amount in half.

Heating and Cooling

Heating and cooling a dealership accounts for around 50% of its energy consumption. High performance windows and doors insulate the space from harsh weather, while programmable thermostats, centralized controls and high-efficiency boilers, heat pumps and air conditioning equipment help reduce the total energy required for heating and cooling.


Simply installing water efficient fixtures can cut water consumption by 30-50%. Smart irrigation systems distribute water exactly when and where plants need it with minimal loss to evaporation. A closed loop car wash system recycles water with no wastewater discharge.

Solar PV

Solar PV is the most cost-effective renewable energy option for dealerships today. Some Honda dealers have demonstrated “Electric Grid Neutral” status, meaning 100% of their net electricity consumption is generated on-site annually.
