17 LCPS Schools Awarded 2021 ENERGY STAR Certifications
Seventeen Loudoun County Public Schools (LCPS) buildings were awarded the 2021 ENERGY STAR certification by the federal Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), signifying superior energy efficiency.
ENERGY STAR is the national, official symbol of energy efficiency in the United States. A building that earns an ENERGY STAR award uses less energy than 75 percent of similar buildings in the U.S. Department of Energy’s Commercial Building Energy Consumption Survey. LCPS is proud of the teamwork across multiple departments to achieve the 2021 recognitions. This represents a united effort toward financial and environmental sustainability.
Through the years, more than 70 of the LCPS buildings have earned an ENERGY STAR designation for at least one year. The partnership with ENERGY STAR is a significant factor in the success of the LCPS Energy Conservation and Efficiency program. The overall savings for the LCPS Energy Conservation and Efficiency program which began in 1993 is more than $106 million.
