National Government Services’ Shelbyville Data Center Earns ENERGY STAR Certification

Only 107 data centers in U.S. currently hold designation signaling national leadership in energy performance standards

SHELBYVILLE, Ky.--()--National Government Services, Inc.’s 30,000 square foot Shelbyville Data Center joins an elite class of only 36 companies and 107 data centers across the U.S. that are ENERGY STAR certified by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), signaling the organization has met high energy performance standards.

“Our team managed to achieve this significant accomplishment without increasing cost, enabling us to continue offering cost-effective programs and services to our customers and even pass along impending savings”

“This certification was achieved by our best-in-class associates using their expertise, teamwork and dedication to help us meet the program’s stringent criteria,” said National Government Services President Fran Gary. “As a federal health contractor, we recognize how much of a role environmental sustainability plays in the public’s health. Our federal health partners can take pride in working with us and knowing that our data center truly stands apart.”

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 U.S. that is based on actual, verified energy performance.

“Our team managed to achieve this significant accomplishment without increasing cost, enabling us to continue offering cost-effective programs and services to our customers and even pass along impending savings” said NGS Chief Information Officer Frank LaSota. “By applying innovative thinking and strong teamwork we were able to earn this rating.”

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.
