Elmore County Board of Education announced today that 15 buildings have earned EPA’s ENERGY STAR certification. This recognition is presented to the most energy efficient buildings in the country.
“We are extremely pleased to receive this recognition from ENERGY STAR,” said Dr. Jeff Langham Superintendent. “Our energy conservation efforts are saving taxpayer dollars while also helping protect our local environment. Since we began partnering with Energy Education on a serious energy conservation program we have saved $2,378,379 and the environmental impact is equal to taking 1995 cars off the street or planting 284,251 trees in our community.
