Field Local Schools - Two Schools Awarded with EPA’s ENERGY STAR®

Posted on 1/19/2010

(Mogadore, Ohio) January 2010 - Brimfield Elementary and Suffield Elementary, part of the Field Local School District, have earned the honor of becoming Energy Star® labeled buildings from the Environmental Protection Agency. Only forty-seven K-12 buildings in Ohio have received the distinction. Brimfield and Suffield Elementary Schools, designed by FMD Architects of Fairlawn, were newly constructed buildings and began holding classes in their new facilities for the 2007/08 school year. As part of the new construction, CCG Automation, Inc. installed an Automated Logic's WebCTRL® building automation system to control all major pieces of HVAC equipment as well as monitoring humidity and CO2 levels. This web based system has the ability to do scheduling, zoning, defining setpoints, and analyzing trends in energy consumption.

CCG’s innovative approach to sequencing and analyzing trends has played an instrumental part in these schools becoming ENERGY STAR labeled.  These concepts have enabled the schools to keep utility cost low while ensuring a comfortable, quality indoor environment for students and staff.

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 8,784 buildings nationwide have earned the ENERGY STAR Award, and just 2,328 of these are school buildings. Other buildings include supermarkets, offices, churches, hotels, banks, hospitals, courthouses, warehouses, dormitories and big-box retail buildings.
