Description:

  • Many advanced green building components are incorporated into the new Green Technology Education Department, including absorption heater and solar energy collectors to help power the building's heating and cooling systems.
  • The walls are insulated foam concrete panels that provide an “R” rating of more than 40 for the walls, more than twice the standard rating, and the ceilings are open so students may learn from the installation.
  • Monitors are located throughout the building that report energy savings and amount of water stored, to show how effective the technology is in saving energy.
