Kansas City Federal Courthouse Uses Reflective ‘Cool Roof,’ Solar

doleThe Robert J. Dole U.S. Courthouse in Kansas City, Kan., features a “cool roof” reflective membrane designed to keep cooling costs in check, reports KansasCity.com.

The $4.6 million enhancement to the 16-year old courthouse also includes a solar system.

The solar system itself has 200 panels.

Including the reflective membrane and the solar system, the green roof aspect of the project cost $1.6 million.

Funds came from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act.

Because this is demonstration project, in the lobby a display will inform visitors how much power is being generated.

Here’s a link to a video about the installation of the panels.

Other upgrades to the Energy Star building include high performance lighting and controls, high efficiency chillers, new high efficiency chilled water, and condenser water pumps, and direct digital controls for the chilled water plant.
