The state of Georgia leads the U.S. in the number of LEED-certified public buildings, according to the Sept. issue of Energy Ace Newsletter . The Georgia Dept. of National Resources has five LEED-certified buildings and Georgia Tech has one. In terms of national rankings of green building owners, Georgia DNR ranks third behind the City of Seattle and PNC Bank. Emory University in Atlanta is number 4 on the list.
