Edmonds City Hall awarded Energy Star labelAmong municipalities within the State of Washington, only Edmonds has attained this consistency
For the third consecutive year, the United States EPA has recognized Edmonds City Hall for its superior energy performance, according to Jim Stevens, Facilities Maintenance Manager.
In 2011, it first achieved the distinction of being labeled with the ENERGY STAR, a mark that acknowledges performance currently within the top 20 percent of its peer structures across the United States.
Documentation of energy consumption collected for each month since the first award proves that this noteworthy performance continues.
Among municipalities within the State of Washington, only Edmonds has attained this consistency.
In addition to operating more efficiently than four of five comparable buildings across the United States, Edmonds City Hall has also reduced its consumption of power by 6.3 percent since its baseline-rating year of 2007.
Edmonds Mayor Dave Earling said, "Being awarded the ENERGY STAR at City Hall for the third year running provides ongoing testimony to the commitment of the City of Edmonds and its employees to conserve energy and to operate as efficiently as possible.
“These efforts reduce the City's carbon footprint, making its operations greener, and they contribute directly to the bottom line of the general fund, indicating of good stewardship of tax dollars.
“We are proud of the performance of our staff. The 2013 award will be displayed at City Hall's front doors to demonstrate this prominently to all who enter."
