New ways to build can change everything
Almost 40 percent of all the energy used in the United States is consumed through the construction, maintenance, and use of buildings. Various industries, private home owners, educational institutions, and museums like The Wild Center are increasingly focused on improving efficiency and reducing energy use across all stages of a building's life.
The Wild Center's experience with building points in one direction. Every decision made about energy use ends up saving energy and money. Through retrofits, new installations, and a commitment to efficiency, The Center has seriously reduced its need for oil, increased its lighting efficiency and can heat hot water and building with sunlight.
