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.
