Working with Sun Peak, (www.solarlog-web.net/applewood
) our 4019 Marsh Rd storage campus’s solar system provides a projected 96% usage offset. With net-metering with MG&E over production is being served back to the grid. In months of low solar production, MG&E will supplement facility demand needs.
components, purchased locally from Trachte in Sun Prairie are Green
Build, Energy Efficient Storage Units. Below
are some of the features and benefits of using this type of system.
More so than conventional construction, the design of a
pre-engineered Trachte building system allows for the use of fewer
construction materials. Through extensive testing and computer
modeling, Trachte is able to reduce the amount of steel used to meet
steel buildings are made primarily from recycled materials and are
100% reusable. The buildings can be easily modified, providing
a cost-effective means of construction and remodeling while also
extending the life of the building. These products allow
AppleWood Self Storage to increase the sustainability and amount of
reusable material available.
All finishes applied by Trachte meet or exceed EPA regulations for
low VOC paints, and come with high reflectivity that meet or
surpass the Solar Reflectance Index (SRI) of 29.
Our insulation system achieves R-30 or more for the climate control
buildings, assisting in lower utility costs.
Roof systems meets or surpasses the Solar Reflectance Index (SRI) of
29. The “cool roof” guards against the Heat Island Effect
which produces high relative temperatures in urban areas.
We purchased building components from the Trachte plant in Sun
Prairie, WI. This reduced transportation energy costs.
And because pre-engineered building components are low in
weight, they require less freight and fewer trucks to ship.
