What are ENERGY STAR and LEED certifications?
ENERGY STAR is a performance-based certification and nationally recognized commitment to energy conservation that is given only to the top 25% of the most energy efficient of U.S. buildings. Performance Services supports the application process and submits the application to help our clients gain the recognition and prestige their successful efforts deserve.
LEED is a design-based certification developed by the United States Green Building Council (USGBC) to encourage and accelerate good building practices and help promote sustainability for both new and existing (LEED-EB) buildings. LEED recognizes sustainable design in six key areas of human and environmental health. Performance Services employs a staff of LEED AP accredited professionals to assist owners who wish to pursue LEED certification. Nearly 50 percent of LEED points can be awarded if a building is certified as Energy Star based on the Energy and Atmosphere and Indoor Environmental Quality LEED point categories.
