May 5th, 2010East Town Mall Continuing To Go Green
East Town Mall is getting Greener. The East Town Mall has continued its program of green initiatives by installing 7 Mariah Windspire © Wind Turbines at the malls front entrance, which will deliver low cost power to the mall. Mall owner Cabot Investment Properties, LLC developed the clean, renewable wind power program in conjunction with Cabot’s Project Management Team led by Bruce Hall, Kahler Slater Architects, Milwaukee, WI and Gaia Power Systems and Priest Engineering, Denver CO. The installation was performed by local Green Bay contractors Bayland Buildings, Inc. and Suburban Electrical Engineers/Contractors, Inc.
Cabot spokesman Jesse Terry stated that “not only are the economic returns attractive, but clean energy produced from the turbines will significantly reduce the utility operating expense for the owner and tenants. Additionally, the turbines and the initiative they represent are expected to appeal to both mall customers, and potential tenants.” Mr. Terry further stated, “ that this is just the latest green initiative that has taken place at the mall, other items include replacement of older lighting fixtures to energy efficient lighting, installation of energy management system which controls energy consumption, replacement of several of the buildings original HVAC units with current “state of the art” units utilizing environmentally friendly refrigerants, mandating the use of green cleaning products within the mall, and recycling by the mall tenants, in addition to cell phone and eye glass recycling bins.
How it works:
Wind turns the Windspire ® airfoil which spins the rotor around, turning a generator which produces energy. This power is then either consumed at the source or is transferred to the electric grid.
In conjunction with the City of Green Bay, a ribbon cutting ceremony and press conference will be held at the East Town Mall on May 12, 2010 at 10:00 am at the mall’s front entrance, alternate location in the event of rain at the mall’s center court.
