Hudson City Schools' Ellsworth Hill Elementary Recognized with ENERGY STAR Award
Posted on 3/14/2011
(Hudson, Ohio) March, 2011 - Hudson City Schools, Ellsworth Hill Elementary has been awarded the ENERGY STAR designation from the Environmental Protection Agency. Only 93 K-12 buildings in Ohio have received the certification.
Ellsworth Hill Elementary was built in 2007 and included CCG Automation 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 have not only helped keep utility cost low but will increase the lifetime of the building, and have led to the building being awarded the ENERGY STAR for 2010.
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 13,424 buildings nationwide have earned the ENERGY STAR Award, and just 4,209 of these are school buildings. Other buildings include supermarkets, office, hotels, banks, hospitals, courthouses, warehouses, dormitories and big-box retail buildings.
