Energy Star Certification

Submitted by billi.robbins on Tue, 04/10/2018 - 17:25

Have you ever looked in the window of Taylor Elementary and wondered what this Energy Star sign is all about? Well let us tell you!

Recently our district applied to earn the Energy Star Certification and out of 44 facilities, ALL 44 qualified! This is amazing feat because in order to qualify a building must score in the top 75 percentile compared against other schools in the nation. We are proud to say Taylor Elementary was one of those 44 facilities in Nebo School District!

"Our staff has embraced the energy conservation program on our campus." said Mrs. Robbins. "We put forth a daily effort to reduce energy use in our building. Simple things like remembering to turn off all technology and turn lights off when not in use has made a huge difference in our building. We have all gained a sense of accomplishment from this recognition. Our students are also learning what it means to preserve natural resources."

We are proud to say Nebo School District has the most certified facilities out of any organization in the state of Utah. We are the Energy Star leader in the state. Taylor Elementary would like to personally thank Mr. Bodie Bradley and Mr. Russell Maughan, our District Energy Specialist, for making this happen!
