The Environmental Protection Agency is recognizing Loudoun County for its superior energy performance.
The recognition also singles out the Valley Bank Building in Leesburg by giving it the Energy Star Certification. The building, which was built in 1816, uses 35 percent less power and generates 35 percent fewer greenhouse gas emissions than similar buildings across the country.
The Valley Bank Building is the second building to receive the award in the county. The first was the Shenandoah Building, which is also located in Leesburg.
