In 2002, the City of Beverly received $623,000 from the Massachusetts Technology Collaborative (www.masstech.org) to renovate the Centerville Elementary School into a signature, high performance, energy efficient, green school. Building features incorporated into the school include:1) a skylight system that enables natural light to enter into classroom areas and works in conjunction with photo sensors to dim lights automatically when not needed; 2) 10 kilowatts of solar photovoltaic cells; and 3) a 10 kilowatt wind turbine. The monitoring station in the lobby displays output from the solar panels and turbine, encouraging learning how renewable energy can help transform the way we obtain electricity. Predicted energy savings 2002: $11,000 per year.
