Firelands High School and Firelands Elementary Earns ENERGY STAR Award

Posted on 2/1/2012

Firelands Local Schools – Firelands High School and Firelands Elementary have earned the honor of becoming an ENERGY STAR® labeled buildings from the Environmental Protection Agency. Only one hundred sixty-four K-12 buildings in Ohio have received the certification.

In 2010 Firelands Local Schools completed an Energy Conservation Program (Ohio School Facilities Commission House Bill 264 Project) with CCG. The project improvements have enabled the schools to lower utility cost while ensuring a comfortable quality indoor environment for students and staff, thus earning the ENERGY STAR label.  

School buildings that have earned the ENERGY STAR Award use nearly 40 percent less energy than average buildings and emit 35 percent less carbon dioxide into the atmosphere, offering a significantly smaller carbon footprint. Buildings excel due to good energy management practices such as routine energy efficiency benchmarking.

ENERGY STAR was introduced by the EPA in 1992 as a voluntary, market-based partnership to reduce greenhouse gas emissions through energy efficiency.  To qualify for the ENERGY STAR, a building must score in the top 25 percent based on EPA’s National Energy Performance Rating System and requires a review of the facility by a professional engineer.  Only 18,135 buildings nationwide have earned the ENERGY STAR Award, and just 5,683 of these are school buildings. Other buildings include supermarkets, office, churches, hotels, banks, hospitals, courthouses, warehouses, dormitories and big-box retail buildings.
