1 Robbins Park Green Design!!!!! By: Meredith Haltzman Jana Novey Scott Flickstein

2 Power Supplier! Geothermal Plant 1.A production well is drilled into a known geothermal reservoir 2.Hot geothermal fluids flow through pipes to a power plant for use in generating electricity 3.Hot, pressurized geothermal fluid turns the turbine blades on a shaft

3 Geothermal Plant 4. Energy from the turbine spins magnets and creates electrical current 5. Electrical current from the generator is sent to power lines to homes, buildings, and businesses

5 Advantages to Geothermal No pollution Less expensive than a non-renewable Takes up little room Very clean No fuel Disadvantages to Geothermal Most cannot support a geothermal energy plant built near a volcano Rock has to be soft enough to drill through Only lasts 20 years Harmful gases can escape when drilling

6 Green (living) Roof Reduces energy for heating and cooling. Reduces storm water run-off Filters pollutants and heavy metals out of rainwater Fosters Natural Habitat Creation

7 Green (living) Roof Filters pollutants and carbon dioxide out of the air Insulates buildings for sound Increases the life of the waterproofing

8 Sustainable Flooring (recycled tires) Durable Naturally Resilient Quiet Long Product Life Slip Resistant Low Maintenance High Recycled Content

9 Low Flow Toilet the money that you will spend to purchase this toilet can be recouped in about a few years by the amount of money you save using less water.

10 Recycled Materials Uses up less of the earth's natural material Reduces the release of green house gases Conserves nature's resources (water, wood, etc…)

11 Compact Fluorescent Light Bulbs (CFL) Last from 8-10 times longer Use about 75% less energy Produces 90% less heat Lasts 10,000 hours

12 Passive Solar Heating Cut energy costs Lower impact on the environment, because it uses much less fossil fuel Never needs maintenance or attention
