Map It!


Meadow?s Edge Elementary School serves approximately 310 elementary students in the southwest portion of the Penn Harris Madison School Corporation located in Mishawaka, Indiana. The 57,200-square-foot building was built in 1998 and has three portable classrooms to accommodate possible overflow enrollment.


In 2007, the Penn Harris Madison School Corporation partnered with Energy Education Inc. to create a people-based energy conservation program that emphasizes changing the habits of building occupants. Through the efforts of the more than 20 teachers and staff members, the energy savings at Meadow?s Edge has gone from 16 percent in the first year of the program to a high of 32 percent in 2009. The building received ENERGY STAR certification in both 2011 and 2012.


Built in 1998, Meadow?s Edge is one of Penn Harris Madison?s newer schools. Most of the energy savings at this building come from dedicated staff members who have improved the run time of the equipment in the building including lights, computers, and HVAC systems. Staff members have also learned how to control classroom temperature through the efficient use of windows and window blinds. There have also been some improvements in equipment. More than 110 outdated computers have been upgraded to have more energy-efficient power supplies and flat-screen monitors. All of these improvements have helped Meadow?s Edge to earn ENERGY STAR certification.
