Environmental Aspects

Several effective energy features were included: daylighting, Trombe walls for passive solar heating, downdraft cool-towers for natural ventilation cooling, energy-efficient lighting, and advanced building controls. A roof-mounted photovoltaic (PV) system provides electric power. This project will save roughly $14,000 and about 10 kW of electric demand per year through these energy-saving measures.
