  • Measures to Minimize Energy Usage Our Focuses: Solar -20 kW Photovoltaic system provide energy for the site Wind-300 kW wind turbines provide energy on site We can mimic the Queens Botanical Garden and explore other measures to conserve energy: 1-Ground-source heat pumps as a source for heating and cooling 2-Large windows and 16’ ceilings increase daylighting 3-Operable windows allow for cooling near summertime 4-Modulating photoelectric daylight sensors 5-Occupancy sensors
  • Budget Analysis Phase 1: Assuming we get solar panels and two wind turbines donated and installed at least a year before the harbor school moves into the site, we could generate up to $806,200 in profit from energy sales to the grid. This would cover the cost of extending the pier to accommodate the turbines. Phase 2: To construct the first floor of the waterfront building, which houses all the necessary student activities, we assume a square foot cost of $430. The building footprint is 6800 sq. ft. which gives an estimated cost of $2.9 million. The actual cost may in fact be lower since the new SPAT center will make use of the existing foundation and structure. This figure is above the target budget of 2 million but revenue from the turbines and solar panels should bring it within range. Phase 3: The green roof will cost an estimated $78000, which combined with the cost of a pool, aquariums, and additional remodeling on the second floor, will total around $1 million. We hope, however, to get sponsorships for several of these features including the green roof and pool. Phase 4: We don’t have an estimate for the cost of the habitat restoration but it would include demolition of the bulkhead, transport of raw materials, and labor. This phase would coincide chronologically and programmatically with the West 8/Rogers-Marvel landscaping scheme for Governors Island so it a financial collaboration is conceivable.
