The Science Center’s new energy efficiencies and environmental practices will reduce our environmental and economic impact associated with fossil fuels - our carbon footprint - by as much as 12%.
The Science Center’s state-of-the-art HVAC system will save approximately 25% of our electric bill providing reliable, long-term and more efficient air conditioning and heating at a much lower cost.
The Science Center’s new water reclamation system will recycle water that normally drains out of the HVAC condensation line. That is going to save the amount of drinkable water we use by 25%! That’s about 80,000 gallons a month.
The Science Center’s paper recycling program will save about 12 tons of paper a year. That’s over 200 trees and 84,000 gallons of water.
The Science Center’s new 144-panel solar array produces enough electricity to power three homes.
