Solar system and other energy and water efficiencies
HSSV’s solar system is the largest solar plant Milpitas. owned and Tioga energy, commercial, Government and non-profit institutions, renewable energy sources in the Member State where the service provider is hosted by photovoltaic system went live in July 2010.274 KW solar parking structure and situated in a quiet street in the tone of the systems consist of 1,335 photovoltaic (PV) modules.One day, starting with the order at HSSV’s animal Community Center, estimated 33% of all energy to create a significant energy throughout the service life of the system.Waiting for fiscal year 2011, HSSV solar installation help save up to EUR 50000 for energy costs in your organization.
Solar is only one part of the center Green attributes: animal community was constructed, using 90% of the funds, the old building of the concrete and energy and water efficiency technologies set includes:
A very effective kennel, cleaning system to ensure that, when you use the appropriate means of disinfection at the kennels only 2.2 gallons per minute. wheel of HVAC system to intercept and reinterpret heating and air filtering and offer 100% air exchange. Reflective “cool” the roof of the building in the winter the Sun reduces the heating and air conditioning in the summer to reduce costs. Strategic building placement and use Windows and the sun light pipes provide natural lighting for more than 75% of the building’s interior space to the status of sensors to control lighting.. hereinafter referred to as bioswales to intercept and clean rainwater run-off, of course, before it enters the water treatment system, which reduces the energy of pure water is needed; Artificial dog parks and landscape original accompanying the turf eliminates the need for regular water.
