We are excited to announce that Autumn Creek has earned the ENERGY STAR® certification from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency for 2019! The next time you visit, check out the recognizable etched label on display at our entrance – it represents proven, verified superior energy performance over a 12-month period. In fact, ENERGY STAR certified buildings perform in the top 25 percent of similar buildings nationwide!

This is the first year that Autumn Creek Apartments has earned the ENERGY STAR. By meeting these strict standards, Autumn Creek Apartments is saving energy, saving money, and helping protect the environment by generating fewer greenhouse gas emissions than typical buildings.

For more than 20 years, EPA’s ENERGY STAR program has been America’s resource for saving energy and protecting the environment – today, thousands of facility owners and managers use ENERGY STAR to improve the energy performance of their buildings.

We received a score of 98/100, indicating that we perform better than at least 98% of similar buildings nationwide. We are committed to going green and being an environmental leader. We credit this success to the efforts put forth to install energy saving low-flow toilets, shower heads, and faucets. Additionally, we have installed new energy efficient LED lights in each apartment and around the community. Finally, better windows were installed to improve insulation.

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.

To date, tens of thousands of buildings and plants across all fifty states have earned the ENERGY STAR. For more information about ENERGY STAR for Buildings and Plants, visit
