Cocalico schools earn ‘green’ designation
The Cocalico School District, working with PPL Electric Utilities, is making the grade when it comes to energy-efficient buildings. Reamstown and Denver elementary schools received ENERGY STAR status in 2010, as did Cocalico Middle School. The program is run by the federal Environmental Protection Agency. The federal agency said about 6,200 commercial buildings across the country earned ENERGY STAR status in 2010, an increase of nearly 60 percent compared with 2009. Commercial buildings include 14 types of structures, such as schools, hospitals and office buildings. The EPA said more than 12,600 buildings have achieved ENERGY STAR status since the program started in 1999. The government said growth in the ENERGY STAR program now results in $1.9 billion in annual energy savings. This program is just one way PPL Electric Utilities partners with its education customers on energy efficiency, said Thomas C. Stathos, manager of customer programs and services for the utility. This is so much more than a plaque on the wall. They operate at a higher-than-normal standard of energy efficiency and that benefits everyone. That deserves praise.
The school district is among nearly two dozen in the PPL Electric Utilities service territory in eastern and central Pennsylvania that had buildings receive the ENERGY STAR designation last year.
