Discovery learned Thursday, August 2 that the school has earned the ENERGY STAR® certification from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency for 2018. This nationally-recognized symbol represents proven, verified superior energy performance over a 12-month period. In fact, ENERGY STAR certified buildings perform in the top 25 percent of similar buildings nationwide.
By meeting these strict standards, Discovery Elementary and Arlington Public Schools are saving energy, saving money, and helping protect the environment by generating fewer greenhouse gas emissions than typical buildings.
For more than 20 years, EPA’s ENERGY STAR program has been a national resource for saving energy and protecting the environment. Today, thousands of facility owners and managers use ENERGY STAR to improve the energy performance of their buildings.
