Our Eco-Friendly Building
24-Panel Solar System
The Eden Prairie dental building at 7825 Terrey Pine Court has added a large 24-panel solar system to their roof to supplement building power needs. The building houses Ovation Orthodontics (fomerly Hultgren, Hoxie & Waki Orthodontics) on the lower level & Dr. Derr and Dr. Chi Family Dentistry on the upper floor. The dentists are showing great leadership in environmental stewardship for the use of both green roof technology & the utilization of a solar power system. The system utilizes 24 Sharp 224 W panels with a maximum output of 5376 W. This advanced system has separate inverters for every panel & each individual panel & inverter’s performance can be monitored through the Internet from anywhere in the world.
Our “Green” Roof
The Eden Prairie dental building at 7825 Terrey Pine Court also has it’s very own Green Roof. A green roof, or rooftop garden, is a vegetative layer grown on a rooftop. Green roofs provide shade and remove heat from the air through evapotranspiration, reducing temperatures of the roof surface and the surrounding air. On hot summer days, the surface temperature of a green roof can be cooler than the air temperature, whereas the surface of a conventional rooftop can be up to 90°F (50°C) warmer.
Benefits of a Green Roof
Reduced energy use: Green roofs absorb heat and act as insulators for buildings, reducing energy needed to provide cooling and heating.
Reduced air pollution and greenhouse gas emissions: By lowering air conditioning demand, green roofs can decrease the production of associated air pollution and greenhouse gas emissions. Vegetation can also remove air pollutants and greenhouse gas emissions through dry deposition and carbon sequestration and storage.
Improved human health and comfort: Green roofs, by reducing heat transfer through the building roof, can improve indoor comfort and lower heat stress associated with heat waves.
Enhanced stormwater management and water quality: Green roofs can reduce and slow stormwater runoff in the urban environment; they also filter pollutants from rainfall.
Improved quality of life: Green roofs can provide aesthetic value and habitat for many species.
