Vermont Designates First Energy Star SchoolsVT Digger, November 6, 2013
RICHMOND – State and Federal officials joined with Efficiency Vermont and the Vermont Superintendents Association today to confer ENERGY STAR recognition on 11 schools. The sought-after designation indicates that the schools are in the top 25% nationally for energy efficiency, and that they meet stringent standards for health, ventilation, comfort, and lighting quality. Today’s award ceremony also marked the launch of Project Green School, a unique collaboration that will seek to put all Vermont schools on the path toward ENERGY STAR designation by 2020.
The 11 schools that were honored today represent communities throughout Vermont: Addison Central School, Brattleboro Union High School, Camels Hump Middle School, Champlain Valley Union High School, Clarendon Elementary School, Harwood Union High School, Lake Region Union High School, Mount Mansfield Union High School, Shelburne Community School, Waits River Valley School, and Woodbury Elementary School.
