For the third consecutive year, the United States U.S. Environmental Protection Agency recognized Edmonds City Hall for its superior energy performance with an Energy Star label, according to Jim Stevens, facilities maintenance manager.
The honor acknowledges performance currently within the top 20 percent of its peer structures across the United States. Among municipalities within the state, only Edmonds has attained this consistency.
In addition to operating more efficiently than four or 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.
