What you may not know is:

The least efficient schools use three times more energy

than the best energy performers;


Top performing ENERGY STAR labeled schools cost forty cents per square foot less to operate than the average performers.

Think of the amount of funds saved

in an ENERGY STAR school

on energy bills

that can now be used for other necessary budget items (e.g. salaries, books, teaching tools, etc.)

The ENERGY STAR program

has boosted the adoption of energy-efficient products,

practices and services

through valuable partnerships,

objective measurement tools and consumer education.

It directs EPA to

“conduct a basic engineering research and technology program to develop, evaluate, and demonstrate non-regulatory strategies and technologies for reducing air pollution.”

The ENERGY STAR program was established by EPA in 1992, under the authority of the Clean Air Act.

EPA has partnered with organizations throughout America (including schools)

to implement practical, proven, cost-effective solutions

for reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions

with outstanding environmental and financial success.

In 2012, 18,000 organizations partnered with EPA,

improved efficiency,

and realized significant environmental

and financial benefits.

These partners help protect the climate

while making energy efficiency accessible

to their customers, the public, and their own organizations.
