Virginia Beach named in top 25 for energy efficiency

Virginia Beach is one of the top 25 cities in the nation when it comes to energy-efficient buildings, according to the latest list from the federal government.

The Environmental Protection Agency ranks cities by the number of buildings receiving Energy Star certification, and for the first time a Virginia city made it to the top 25.

There were 67 buildings in the Hampton Roads region receiving Energy Star certification, for a total of 6.4 million square feet. Combined, they saved $4.1 million in energy costs.

Washington D.C. also made the list (as it usually does), ranking number 2 for the fourth straight year behind Los Angeles.

As the Virginian-Pilot reported,

Of the 67 buildings certified last year as worthy of Energy Star status, almost half were in Virginia Beach. The rest were scattered throughout the region: seven in Norfolk, seven in Chesapeake, one in Portsmouth, eight in Williamsburg, among others.
