REI Round Rock Second Gen Green Store To Use 48% Less Energy

REI Round Rock Green Prototype

Mounting on the green building success of their previous stores, including the green Boulder REI we wrote about previously, REI today opens the doors to its second generation of green prototype store in Round Rock, Texas.  The Texas store is projected to consume 48% less energy than a typical store and generate a portion of its power from a solar panel installation, building integrated photovoltaics, and a solar hot water system.  After that, Round Rock will rely on Solatubes to displace a portion of articifial lighting and the purchase of green power generated from biomass digesters.

The Second Annual Plenty Twenty

Plenty20

I always find these lists interesting, but here’s the idea: "There are game-changers and then there are world-changers.  From Internet giants working to make renewable energy cheaper than coal, to a sea captain monitoring the ocean’s plastic waste, to the growth of intentional communities (they’re not just for hippies anymore)—welcome to Plenty’s second annual list honoring (in no particular order) 20 dynamic individuals and 20 pioneering companies that are bettering the planet, plus 10 innovative ideas that will revolutionize how we live."

Palo Alto Law Firm Installs Large 87 kW Solar System

Solar

The Silicon Valley-based law firm of Cooley Godward Kronish has just brought online the largest on-site solar system of any Bay Area law firm.  The 465 panel, 87 kW system was installed on the roof of their Palo Alto-Hanover building of 130,000 sf.  Installing a solar system of this size has almost lost its newsworthiness, especially with tons of companies placing monster solar arrays in service by the end of this year to take advantage of the tax benefits.  But what’s really interesting, I think, is one of the reasons the firm decided to generate some on-site green power: their clients are in this business and inspired them to go green.

Frieze Harley-Davidson 0345

We’re seeing all sorts of companies going for LEED Certification, and the most macho of motorcycle manufacturers is no different.  Just recently, the USGBC announced that the Frieze Harley-Davidson Dealership in O’Fallon, Illinois has been LEED Certified at the Gold level.  It’s the first, LEED Harley-Davidson dealership in the Nation.  The 33,000 sf dealership was sustainably designed and built with ICFs with an R-value of forty.  Plus, with over forty Solatubes and all the various green elements that led to a credible Gold certification, it’s also partially powered by a wind turbine.

Giveaway: MOO Green Pack of Eco- friendly Business Cards

MOO Green Business Cards

This is part of the Jetson Green birthday giveaway, so make sure to leave a comment by midnight Friday, July 25, 2008, if you want to be considered for the contest.*

I’ve been a MOO mini-card customer for probably two years and am what you might call a gargantuan fan of the company.  Every time I give someone a MOO, I get a reaction from them.  I gave one to Ed Begley, Jr. and he was blown away by the small design.  So I was excited to hear that MOO began offering eco-friendly business cards within the last couple weeks.  I designed a set using Jetson Green logos (imported from Flickr) and they shipped to me in a snap.  They’re absolutely incredible, too.  I just love the look and feel of these green business cards.  If you want to get a set, MOO Green cards come in a 50 pack with pricing from $21.99 plus shipping.  They’re made with 100% recycled fiber, completely recyclable and biodegradable, and totally chlorine free.  Plus, they look so good and you can make as many unique cards as you have imagination.
