HCPSS Schools Earn 2018 EPA Energy Star

September 12th, 2018

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has certified 44 Howard County public schools with its Energy Star award for 2018, designating superior energy performance. Buildings certified with the Energy Star are verified to perform in the top 25 percent of buildings nationwide, based on demonstrated energy performance.

On average, Energy Star certified buildings and plants use 35 percent less energy, cause 35 percent fewer greenhouse gas emissions, and are less expensive to operate than comparable buildings, all without sacrifices in performance or comfort.

Howard County Public School System (HCPSS) is committed to environmental sustainability. LEED standards guide all new school construction, and the majority of HCPSS schools have been certified as Green Schools.
