Sustainable Features

  • By using a nighttime setback mode for its heating, ventilation and air conditioning system, the facility cuts its energy demand in half on nights, weekends and holidays.
  • The center reduced the use of single-pass cooling on a water source heat pump, saving an estimated 2.8 million gallons of water per year.
