About ENERGY STAR

ENERGY STAR is a voluntary program offered by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) that helps businesses and individuals save money while protecting the climate through superior energy efficiency.

The ENERGY STAR program was established by the EPA in 1992, under the authority of the Clean Air Act. Under the EPA’s leadership, American consumers, businesses, and organizations have made investments in energy efficiency that are transforming the market for efficient products and practices, creating jobs, and stimulating the economy. Now in its 24th year, the ENERGY STAR program has boosted the adoption of energy efficient products, practices, and services through valuable partnerships, objective measurement tools, and consumer education.

What Does it Mean to be ENERGY STAR Certified?

To earn the EPA’s ENERGY STAR certification, a facility has to be certified by a third-party engineer and rank among the top 25 percent in building energy use in its peer group, nationwide. Today, Fairfax County Public Schools (FCPS) has the highest number of ENERGY STAR buildings in the nation.  FCPS has been honored by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) for having 151 schools in the division earning ENERGY STAR certification, the most of any school division in the United States.
