Our Next Building, The Imaginarium, is currently under construction! This 9,000 sq ft Arts & Science Educational Center is a public space to enjoy and learn about art, alternative energy, sustainable practices and environmental stewardship. As a NET Zero Building, we will be creating our own power using various forms of renewable energy sources including Solar, Wind, Geothermal and People Power. The rooftop will also have a high efficiency, all electric kitchen to accommodate visitors on both The Imaginarium and Building 1, which will be connected via a rooftop walkway. WATCH THIS VIDEO for more information on each component planned for the Imaginarium.
This project is part of the Cleaner, Greener Communities program, a major statewide initiative encouraging communities to incorporate sustainability goals and principles into local decision-making, and then form partnerships to transform markets that lead to the reduction of emissions and the generation of economic development benefits. The program, administered by NYSERDA, also empowers communities to take action, providing technical resources and decision-making tools on land use, housing, transportation, energy, economic development and environmental practices, resulting in a more vibrant and prosperous New York State.
