Green is busting out this year in Los Alamos.
A well-attended Energy Town Hall meeting at Fuller Lodge Tuesday morning, marked a departure in scale and emphasis from past years’ events.
Los Alamos County Environmental Services Manager Regina Wheeler facilitated the four-hour program that included new work and initiatives at the laboratory and practical programs like water conservation in the county.
Wheeler also took a turn as a presenter and gave an overview of the county’s increasing commitment to a program of energy and resource sustainability over the last couple of years.
She talked about the indirect benefits of the LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) Green Building Rating certification for the new Eco Station.
Among the advantages was the fact that the new building had been flushed of all its odors and chemicals before the employees moved in. The building and furnishings were not giving off noxious gasses. There was natural lighting and operable windows with views.
“Comfort in the office, is one of the big things,” she said. “You don’t have the noisiness or the off-gassing. We just moved in and our staff is much calmer.”
