Green/Environmental Initiatives

• All spaces are automatically light controlled; lighting will not be used unless occupied

• 21 Solar light pipes in hangar provide nearly 100% of daylight lighting requirements

• Motion detectors in hangar help regulate additional lighting needs such as OFF when not occupied and partially ON for additional lighting on overcast days

• Compact high efficiency fluorescent lighting systems uses 50% less energy than conventional hangar lighting systems

• In combination with motion detectors, the facility will decrease annual energy consumption by more than 150,000 kilowatt-hours (KWS)

• Throughout the life of the system, the decrease in electrical use will reduce Green House gas emissions by nearly 2,000 tons

• A 224 gallon of passive solar energy heated water system will save an additional 8,800 KWS per year

• Translucent wall panels, reflective wall, floor and ceiling coatings, insulated glass with Low E coatings with sunshades, large overhead circulating fans, reflective roofs and low water use landscaping.
