A new home that has earned the ENERGY STAR label has undergone a process of inspections, testing, and verification to meet strict requirements set by the US EPA. ENERGY STAR certified homes use 15-30% less energy than typical new homes while delivering better comfort, quality, and durability.
Improve financial performance and reduce carbon emissions with EPA's strategic energy management approach.
Muskogee Public Schools (MPS) educate approximately 11,879 K-12 students across 14 school buildings. The school district has assessed the energy performance of all of its schools and undertaken improvements since partnering with ENERGY STAR in 2002, averaging nearly a 30 point improvement in energy efficiency. Building improvements included installation of high-efficiency lighting, temperature controls, and an energy management system. MPS saved 541,381 kilowatt hours in 2005 as a result of the upgrades - enough energy to power more than 50 homes per year. MPS financed the work from the energy savings generated by the improvements. Those savings - expected to be $196,000 per year over 10 years, or 20% of the school's former energy bill - are guaranteed by Honeywell Corporation International under a performance contract with the district. This ensures the upgrades will not impact education budgets or require additional taxpayer dollars.
Muskogee Public Schools joined ENERGY STAR in 2002.
