By combining energy-saving design and state-of-the-art
technology, the West
Irving Library
was able to save taxpayers money as the state’s first
LEED-certified, net-zero-energy library. The $8 million library contains
geothermal wells for heating and cooling, solar panels for energy production
and architecture that best utilizes daylight. The 25,000-square-foot library
has generated 665,000 kilowatt hours since opening in April 2011.
