The facility is designed to meet the standards of the State Energy Efficiency Design (SEED) program, which directs state agencies to include cost effective energy conservation measures in new and renovated public buildings.
ide of their room. Equipment and other materials within the complex will be embedded with radio frequency microchips that will allow staff to get a complete inventory of every room with the push of a button on an electronic reader. Staff members will not have to go room to room with pencil and paper accounting for every chair or flat screen TV of which there are dozens. Odegaard added that the microchips are so small they can easily be embedded into personal products, such as hearing aids, that quite often end up tossed into the trash accidentally. "It would be nice to help residents avoid having to replace a $5,000 hearing aid," Odegaard said. The facility's lighting system is controlled in part by sensors that detect the amount of ambient light coming into an area and adjust electrically powered lights accordingly. And thanks to $114,109 in cash incentives from the Energy Trust of Oregon, sunlight will generate an estimated 5 percent of the 133,000 square foot facility's energy needs, thanks to the installation of 336 rooftop solar panels.

technology. The home's utility needs are served by Pacific Power and NW Natural. "From the beginning, we were intent on including a solar electric system in our plans," said John Osborn, the Department of Veterans Affairs facilities and construction manager. "Our agency is moving toward providing more sustainable facilities, so incorporating energy efficiency features throughout was also a top priority. "With guidance from Sunlight Solar Energy, Inc. of Bend, the department opted for a roof mounted system to take full advantage of building angles and solar exposure.

7 kilowatt solar electric system is estimated to generate 93,000 kilowatt hours of energy annually. A kiosk in the community center will show in real time how much electricity the solar panels produce. So the department also invested in several other energy efficiency strategies that are projected to save more than 32,000 kilowatt hours of electricity and 48,000 therms of natural gas annually. The HVAC system includes a heat recovery component, allowing the facility to capture and use heat from one area and replace it in another. A high performance building envelope and high performance windows prevent energy leaks, while the commercial kitchen features energy efficient appliances to control energy use in the freezer and refrigerated areas. Lighting is another essential component of the campus design. The design team made it a priority to find as .
