Northpoint Elementary School serves approximately 580 elementary students in the northern-most portion of the Penn Harris Madison School Corporation located in Granger, Indiana. Built in 1998, the more than 91,800-square-foot building was expanded in 2003 to accommodate increased 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 over 50 dedicated staff members, the energy savings at Northpoint have gone from 22 percent in 2007 to a high of 35 percent in 2009. The building received the ENERGY STAR in both 2011 and 2012.


Built in 1998, Northpoint is one of Penn Harris Madison?s newer schools. Most of the energy savings at this building come from staff members who have improved equipment run time, 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. Approximately 250 outdated computers have been replaced with units that have energy-efficient power supplies and flat-screen monitors. All of these improvements have helped the facility to earn the ENERGY STAR.
