Sustainability at Lime Hollow

Lime Hollow's Visitor Center, along with our under-construction Environmental Education Center, features a broad range of sustainable technologies that will earn LEED points, reduce ongoing operating expenses, and serve as hands-on educational tools. Among these will be a solar array that will produce 110% of our electricity needs; passive air-conditioning; gray-water treatment; rain-water catchment; and other ‘green’ construction materials and techniques. Combined, these features will help ensure our new Education Center is net-zero energy efficient, meaning the total amount of energy used by the building on an annual basis will be roughly equal to the amount of renewable energy created on site.
