PS Business Parks announced today that Warren at The Mile, located at 8000 Westpark Drive in Tysons, Virginia, has earned the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) ENERGY STAR® certification for superior energy performance.
“Improving the energy efficiency of our nation’s buildings is critical to protecting our environment,” said Jean Lupinacci, Chief of the ENERGY STAR Commercial & Industrial Branch. “From the boiler room to the board room, organizations are leading the way by making their buildings more efficient and earning EPA’s ENERGY STAR certification.”
ENERGY STAR certified buildings and plants are verified to perform in the top 25 percent of buildings nationwide, based on weather-normalized source energy use that takes into account occupancy, hours of operation, and other key metrics. ENERGY STAR is the only energy efficiency certification in the United States that is based on actual, verified energy performance.
“We’re honored to earn the ENERGY STAR certification for superior energy performance at Warren at The Mile and appreciate the efforts of everyone who has been involved in its efficient operation,” said Tom Driscoll, Regional Vice President for PS Business Parks. Driscoll credits this success to the hard work and dedication of the on-site property management team who utilized various strategies and technological enhancements to monitor and reduce energy consumption.
“Reducing consumption of natural resources while maintaining a first-class experience for our customers is a priority at PS Business Parks, and we are committed to responsible corporate citizenship and being a good partner in the communities in which we operate,” added Mac Chandler, President and CEO of PS Business Parks.
On average, ENERGY STAR certified buildings and plants use 35 percent less energy, cause 35 percent fewer greenhouse gas emissions, and are less expensive to operate than their peers—all without sacrifices in performance or comfort. To date, tens of thousands of buildings and plants across all fifty states have earned the ENERGY STAR.
