Bourbon County Middle School recently was awarded Energy Star cerfication from the Commonwealth of Kentucky. This status is bestowed on schools that have become energy efficient facilities while demonstrating "exceptional teamwork among all stakeholders that committed to this goal and operate this building."
Each school is given an energy efficiency rating. BCMS has improved that rating drastically over the last few years. All stakeholders have worked to minimize the use of things that use great amounts of energy as well as perform simple acts like turning off lights, unplugging computers during breaks, etc.
The new lights in the gym and an updated HVAC system have also played a key role in energy savings. We are very thankful for the efforts of all of Bourbon County Schools to assist in this effort.
