Leopold gains LEED distinction

Posted on October 24, 2007. Filed under: Uncategorized |

From the Web site of the Aldo Leopold Legacy Center:

The Aldo Leopold Legacy Center has received Platinum LEED ® Certification, the highest possible recognition for green buildings in the United States. Following a rigorous assessment, LEED awarded the Legacy Center 61 points, more than any other building yet rated in the world. The Aldo Leopold Legacy Center is the first “net zero energy” building in Wisconsin and the first carbon neutral building certified by LEED.

The Center includes several renewable energy installations, including “a 39.6 kilowatt (kW) solar electric (photovoltaic) system on its roof, the second largest in Wisconsin.”
