building

Canon City Schools has been involved in energy efficiency projects for many years, and has been an ENERGY STAR partner since 2008. Recently, the school district was recognized by EPA as an ENERGY STAR Leader for improving the district's overall energy performance by more than 10 percent. The district's energy reduction rate is now at 19.3 percent. The Canon City School District includes nine schools as well as three auxiliary buildings, encompassing a total of 650,000 square feet. These buildings range in age from 1925 to 2006 (built year). Some of the energy efficiency projects the school district has undertaken include extensive preventative maintenance, use of geothermal energy for heating and cooling, thermal storage, lighting retrofits, and new insulation to improve building envelopes. As an active ENERGY STAR partner, the district has been engaged in benchmarking, tracking energy consumption, and understanding energy use within each building. Canon City Schools has reached an average ENERGY STAR rating of 90 for the 10 buildings within its portfolio, earning the district recognition as a Top Performer, and four of the nine schools earned the ENERGY STAR for superior energy performance in 2009. The Canon City School District is the first school district in Colorado to receive this prestigious level of recognition from EPA and ENERGY STAR.

Garden Park High School was remodeled from a grocery store and converted to a school in November of 2002. The remodel work included adding new insulation in the ceiling and installing high efficiency furnaces and other features. In 2006, a new direct digital control (DDC) system was added. A new control scheme was added in 2008, which separated furnaces into different zones. This improved energy consumption made the building efficient enough to earn the ENERGY STAR in 2009 and 2010. In 2010, the District changed lighting to decrease the number of fixtures in the halls and common areas.
