FRANKFORT, Kentucky — Seven schools in Oldham County have been recognized by the state for energy efficiency.

The Kentucky Energy and Environment Cabinet and the Kentucky School Boards Association say the schools have earned an energy star rating.

The district's most recent renovation project at Centerfield Elementary has netted an almost 50 percent reduction in energy usage.

To earn the rating, a building must receive at least 75 out of 100 points in the EPA's national energy-performance rating system.

Schools recognized at a recent school board meeting were Centerfield Elementary, Goshen Elementary, Camden Station Elementary, North Oldham Middle, North Oldham High, Oldham County High School and South Oldham High School.
