With a wave of new green construction, Miami is one of 25 cities with the most Energy Star-certified buildings, according to a report from the Environmental Protection Agency, which gives the ratings. Miami’s Energy Star-labeled buildings represent more than 20.7 million square feet and could save $19 million each year in energy costs. There were a total of 16,500 Energy Star-certified buildings in America at the end of 2011. Miami is ranked 18th on the list, ahead of San Diego. Los Angeles has the most Energy Star buildings in the country. — Alexander Britell
