Stafford County Public Schools and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) are recognizing seven (7) Stafford County Public Schools for their commitment to saving energy and protecting the environment. Recipients for the 2013 Energy Star Certification are Brooke Point and Colonial Forge High, Dixon-Smith and H.H. Poole Middle and Park Ridge, Hampton Oaks and Winding Creek Elementary Schools. Energy Star is a voluntary program that helps originations save money and protect our climate through superior energy efficiency. The program identifies energy–efficient buildings that have made strides to reduce energy consumption and reduce pollution through precise management of their facility to the highest energy efficiency standards. The Energy Star program tracks and evaluates the cost, consumption and behavior of each building and then provides a rating between 1-100 points. To gain Energy Star certification, the facility must secure a rating of 75 points or greater. Energy Star provides an in depth assessment of each utility such as electric, natural gas, fuel oil, propane and water. Collected data is compared to other similar facilities across the country. Factors such as regional climates, age of the facility, square footage, occupancy load and building usage is considered.
Energy Star is just one part of the Division’s comprehensive energy conservation program which includes utilizing building sustainable rating systems for new construction and major renovations, energy performance contracting to improve infrastructure to existing facilities, facility commissioning/retro-commissioning efforts to re-fresh aging building systems and school based energy smart teams.
For more information on the Division’s energy conservation program, contact Mr. Bob Randall at firstname.lastname@example.org or visit our web page for Facilities Services.
