ENERGY STAR was introduced by the EPA in 1992 as a voluntary partnership to reduce greenhouse gas emissions through energy efficiency. Today, the ENERGY STAR label can be found on more than sixty-five different kinds of products, 1.4 million new homes, and 20,000 commercial buildings and industrial plants that meet strict energy-efficiency specifications set by the EPA. Over the past twenty years, American families and businesses have saved more than $230 billion on utility bills and prevented more than 1.8 billion metric tons of greenhouse gas emissions with help from ENERGY STAR.

"Brevard Public Schools is pleased to accept EPA’s ENERGY STAR certification in recognition of our energy efficiency efforts,” said Dane Theodore, Assistant Superintendent of Facilities. "Through this achievement, we have demonstrated our commitment to environmental stewardship as well as our success in lowering energy costs.”
