Gifted and Talented Center is Green all the Way Around

In September, 2008 the York County School Division completed construction of its seventh geothermal school building. The 8,500 square foot Extend Center is the home of the school division's elementary program for talented and gifted students. The energy efficient building includes high-efficiency T-8 fluorescent lighting in the classrooms and hallways, double-paned insulated window, occupancy sensors to turn off lights, and a geothermal heating and cooling system which could alone reduce energy consumption by as much as 40% over a traditional HVAC system.

The Extend Center is the latest example of York County School Division's commitment to sustainable building design. The Extend Center is designed to earn the Energy Star building certificate. Seven of York County's schools are Energy Star certified buildings.
