Hudson City Schools – Ellsworth Hill Elementary Recognized with EPA’s ENERGY STAR®

Posted on 4/30/2009

(Hudson, Ohio) April 2009 - Hudson City Schools, Ellsworth Hill Elementary has been awarded the ENERGY STAR® designation from the Environmental Protection Agency. Only 27 school buildings in Ohio have received the certification and Ellsworth Hill is the second school in the Hudson City School District to earn this recognition.

Ellsworth Hill Elementary was built in 2007 and included CCG as part of the building design team. This allowed many Energy Conservation Measures (ECM) to be put into place from the onset of construction.  These ECM’s enabled Ellsworth Hill Elementary to operate so efficiently that they earned the recognition of being an ENERGY STAR labeled building in their first year of occupancy! The diligence and efforts of Hudson City Schools will not only help keep utility cost low but will increase the lifetime of the building.

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.  Only 6,953 buildings nationwide have earned the ENERGY STAR Award, and just 1,616 of these are school buildings. Other buildings include supermarkets, office, hotels, banks, hospitals, courthouses, warehouses, dormitories and big-box retail buildings.
