Several GUHSD Schools Earn Energy Star Award

U.S. Environmental Protection Agency Grants GUHSD Schools Energy Star Award
February 2013- Several GUHSD schools recently earned an Energy Star certification from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. The certification means the schools perform in the Top 25% for energy efficiency among similar facilities and meet strict energy efficiency levels set by the EPA. Apollo, Cortez, Independence and Washington all earned the Energy Star certification. Commercial buildings that earn the EPA Energy Star certification use an average of 35% less energy than typical buildings and also release 35% less carbon dioxide into the atmosphere. "Glendale Union High School District is pleased to accept EPA's Energy Star certification in recognition of our energy efficiency efforts. Through this achievement, we have demonstrated our commitment to environmental stewardship while lowering our energy costs," said GUHSD Superintendent, Eugene Dudo of the recognition.
