Four more schools earn Energy Star designations
by Dan Adkins

Four Scott County schools have reduced their energy bills enough to earn the Energy Star Award, district facilities assistant director Jim McClanahan said.

“It puts us in the elite districts in the state. One of our goals is to be among the leaders,” McClanahan said.

His comments came after Tuesday’s Scott County Board of Education meeting, where the board approved donations of $224 each to purchase Energy Star solid bronze plaques noting their achievement.

The schools and their donors are Northern Elementary School, by KTA Consulting Engineers; Scott County Middle School, by Toyota Motor Manufacturing, Kentucky; the Ninth Grade School, by Walmart; and Scott County High School, by Thermal Equipment.

The awards mean that all but two county schools – Anne Mason and Western elementaries – have trimmed their utility bills enough to receive the Energy Star recognition.

In all, actions taken to reduce energy costs at all Scott County schools have saved the district nearly $675,000 since 2010, McClanahan said.
