Net-Zero Energy Building Includes Geothermal, Solar
Syracuse, NY-based HVAC contracting firm TAG Mechanical Systems provided mechanical systems, including a renewable energy 54 kW solar PV system, for the Skaneateles Village Hall in Skaneateles, NY.
Two Daikin McQuay SmartSource vertical inverter water source heat pumps provide heating and cooling of the facility as part of a geothermal system, and 220 Aleo solar PV panels on the roof generate about 62,000 kWh per year. Electricity not used by the building is placed on the grid.
Formerly a vacant fire station, the repurposed building now houses village offices and a police station and is designed as a net-zero-energy facility, producing more energy than it consumes.
