Sparking Young Minds With Clean Energy


Salmon Brook Ecology Center is an ideal location to learn about the multiple advantages of clean energy. Indeed, this 1,500-square-foot building, created by the Granby Education Foundation, is regularly used to inspire Granby High School and Middle School students to become knowledgeable environmental stewards. The Center contains fish tanks and equipment for raising trout that are released into the local streams, and a nursery for growing plants in water. Designed to be environmentally friendly, the building uses geothermal energy for heating. The 18 solar photovoltaic (PV) panels on the roof convert sunlight directly into 2.7 kilowatts (kW) of power to meet the center’s routine electricity needs, which are equivalent to the electricity demands of a three-bedroom house.
