Pumps Help Net-Zero Campus Save Energy

December 16, 2014 By Linda Hardesty

DCIM100GOPROA greenhouse at Chatham University in Pittsburgh Penn., is serviced by Stratos energy saving pumps with electronic commutated motors from Wilo USA. The pumps help maintain soil temperature for year-round plant growth.

Chatham University’s Eden Hall Campus has been built from the ground up for the study of sustainable living. Eden Hall has been designed to produce more energy than it consumes.

Wilo says pumps often go unnoticed in the pursuit of energy savings but are important because they can account for 20 percent or more of a building’s electrical energy usage.

Wilo Stratos Commercial High-Efficiency Circulators powered by EC motor technology deliver up to 285 USGPM. The Stratos is an electronically controlled, wet-rotor circulator for heating that is also designed to avoid condensate, making it available as part of a cooling water systems for air conditioning and industrial refrigeration.
