Education Center - North Carolina Botanical Garden at Univ. of NC at Chapel Hill
This LEED Platinum building opened in October 2009, with the highest level of certification for a green building. It has solar photo-voltaic panels, generating about 7.5% of the building's energy needs, and is heated and air-conditioned with a geothermal system. All windows are operable and it provides up to 100% of the building's occupied space which results in savings of 60% on electric lighting.
