Baltimore Sustainability Center Fitted With Energy-Efficient LG Devices
(3BL Media/Justmeans) - The new Growing Green Center, built on the campus of Parks & People Foundation in Baltimore, is leading by example. Sponsored by LG Electronics, the purpose of the bulding is to encourage Baltimoreans to go outdoors and make the most of the city's parks as well as inspire youth to go the green way.
The Jean and Sidney Silber Center will be home for Branches, Parks & People’s high school environmental internship program that offers internships to youth in the maintenance of public green spaces so they can learn about educational and green-career pathways after high school.
“The new Jean and Sidney Silber Center showcases the highest level of green building design, and we can't wait for campus guests to get a closer look," Parks & People Foundation President & CEO Lisa Millspaugh Schroeder said in a statement.
The Silber Center was first made public at the Greenbuild Expo sustainable building conference in Washington last year and it was commissioned by Parks & People and the U.S. Green Building Council in partnership with Building Design+Construction magazine.
The Center features various energy efficient and ENERGY STAR certified LG products, including air conditioning systems, consumer electronics and home appliances.
The air conditioning, for example, features LG’s flagship Variable Refrigerant Flow (VRF) technology, which can cool or heat an entire building or just a single area or room. The system avoids losses, saves energy and has low lifecycle costs.
Another key piece of technlogy is the ENERGY STAR certified LG 4K Ultra HD LED TV, featuring webOS Smart TV platform. The Chromebase all-in-one desktop leverages the advantages of the Google Chrome operating system to power one device taking up very little space.
Other ENERGY STAR appliances in the building are LG bottom-freezer refrigerator, dishwater featuring the EasrRack Plus system and microwave with EasyClean interior that does not need chemicals for cleaning.
