May 10, 2019—Honda announced on Thursday that its Honda Transmission Manufacturing of America (HTM) facility in Russells Point, Ohio, has become the first US auto transmission facility to earn the EPA's Energy Star certification, according to a report by CNET.

HTM started down that path in 2014, when it became the first major auto manufacturing facility in the US to get a decent chunk of its energy from wind turbines, which provide more than 10 percent of the plant's power.

Every year, the 1.1-million-square-foot facility cranks out more than 850,000 transmissions for all manner of vehicles.
