DEW Construction Corp. is pleased to announce that our Castleton State College Hoff Hall project received a gold rating certification for Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED™).
Hoff Hall includes a 28.8 kW rooftop solar array (120 panels) along with four new rooftop micro-wind turbines, installed after construction. These specific micro-wind turbines are the only wind turbines designed to coexist with solar energy. Wind and solar generation are considered complementary renewable generation sources. Both are connected to the cloud based software system that presents real-time power generation data in the lobby of Hoff Hall – so students can view the energy usage and generation.
LEED™ is the nationally accepted standard and rating system for high performance (green) buildings developed by the U.S. Green Building Council.
