Green Energy

For electrical needs beyond what the solar panels provide, FRB relies solely on green energy sources, primarily wind. We purchase renewable energy certificiates from Sterling Planet who verifies that the amount of clean energy added to the grid equals Flat Rock Brook's annual energy use.  This quantity of clean energy saves approximately 40,000 pounds of CO2 from being released each year, and reduces other pollutants and mining impacts.

 

FRB’s main boiler was designed to operate at a high efficiency level, saving energy and money.

New Panels

Solar power

FRB has 88 photovoltaic panels installed on the roof of the main building, supplying about half of the center’s electricity.

 

 

Specially designed solar tubes in our exhibit room ceiling let natural light into the room, saving electricity impacts and costs.
