Best State

Ohio

Ohio has 315 LEED registered and certified projects, including 19 schools registered in 2011, leading the nation with more green school projects underway than any other state.

  • Over a 40 year period, Ohio will recoup more than one-third of their total construction expenditure on these schools on energy savings alone.  

  • Additionally, over that same amount of time, Ohio’s green schools are expected to save $1.4 billion dollars.
