YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio- A Youngstown Federal courthouse is one of seven being recognized by the Environmental Protection Agency for saving taxpayer dollars through energy conservation.

The Nathanial R Jones Federal Building and U.S. Courthouse saw a more than 20 percent reduction in energy bills. The money was saved by installing more energy efficient outdoor lights, and reducing the building's use of steam.  

The building saved nearly $24,000, and The EPA says in total, all seven courthouses, saved more than $600,000.
