ENERGY STAR Building Awards

An ENERGY STAR qualified school meets strict energy performance standards set by EPA and uses less energy, is less expensive to operate, and causes fewer greenhouse gas emissions than its peers. The EPA's ENERGY STAR program recognizes buildings that have achieved a rating of 75 or better. This means that the building operates in the top 25% of all comparable buildings participating in the ENERGY STAR program. Prior to this year, YCSD had 6 buildings that had been recognized at least once as an ENERGY STAR Building. The following schools have been recognized as 2009 Energy Star buildings:
