This is a powerpoint for me and my group. Its about what we can do for our campus and make it better for the environment. It talks about water conservation, saving energy, and making a better use of speed bumps and bike racks.

Sustainable campus project

  1. 1. SUSTAINABLE CAMPUS PROJECT By: Hope Peters, Morgan Smith, Chelsea Weems, Natasha Spangler
  2. 2. Making OTC More Sustainable For The Environment • OTC is a good campus for students to go to and it offers many good classes and teachers • With that said, OTC is missing one big factor that can make it a greater campus • If OTC would become more environmentally friendly and use these next suggestions, the campus could be better for students and the earth
  3. 3. What You Will Learn • How to make OTC better for transportation by: • Bike Racks • Green Energy Speed Bumps • How to make OTC save energy with: • Wind Power- wind turbine • How to conserve water for OTC by: • Annually checking leaks • Buying and using rain barrels • Stop automatic flush systems
  4. 4. OTC Transportation • The first topic that will be discussed is transportation • The next few slides will talk about OTC’s transportation and how it could be better!
  5. 5. Bike Racks • Many students have bikes and want to ride them to school • But there aren’t enough bike racks around the campus • Students don’t ride them because they don’t have enough places to safely leave their bikes • More bike racks would encourage students to be physically fit and ride their bike
  6. 6. Cost Of Bike Racks • Depending on the size and where you buy them the prices will look like this: • A rack with 2 places to hold bikes would cost $170.00 • A rack with 4 places to hold bikes would cost $290.00 Uline.com • A rack with 9 places to hold bikes would cost $480.00
  7. 7. Bike Racks • Would: • Save parking spaces • Save gas money for students • Encourage students to be healthy and fit • Keep less toxins from vehicles in the air • Keep the traffic in the parking lot low • Keep bikes from being stolen
  8. 8. Green Energy Speed Bumps • It’s a speed bump that collects kinetic energy from cars driving over it, and it can be turned into electricity • The owner of the speed bumps may use the electricity however they choose • http://youtu.be/QExudqxpKTQ
  9. 9. Cost of Green Energy Speed Bumps • They would eventually pay off themselves • It would take about 2 to 3 years • They cost $1,500-$2,000
  10. 10. Green Energy Speed Bumps • Will: • Save Money- depending on what you use the electricity for will determine how much money you will save • Save Electricity that isn’t being used • Keep students from speeding • Save energy • Make 1 megawatt of electricity per day
  11. 11. Saving Energy • These next few slides will show how OTC can save energy for the campus
  12. 12. Changing to Wind Power • Using wind power is a reliable and effective way to get the OTC campus to help the environment, cut costs, and bring the community together • This will assist OTC and its sustainability in the near future • Transferring the school from electricity to a wind power energy will cut the unhealthy emissions put into the air significantly
  13. 13. Saving Energy: Wind Turbine • A wind turbine captures the natural wind and coverts it into mechanical energy, then electricity • When wind blows past the turbine the blades capture the energy and rotate • the wind speed must be at 2.5 meters per second • The turbine reaches its max at 31 mph so to avoid damage when the wind is over 36 mph the safety controller slows the propellers • Wind energy is clean and renewable
  14. 14. Saving Energy: Wind Turbine • The wind turbine helps avoid environmental impacts due to the zero gas emissions and pollutants • A wind turbine also consumes no water • The turbine will provide a 9-10 year payback as well as saving the college $2,347,884
  15. 15. The turbine at Luther College in Decorah, Iowa • Luther College is a campus that purchased a wind turbine • The turbine reduced its schools footprint by 14-15% and reduced greenhouse gas emissions by 3000 metric tons a year • The turbine can cost a total of 3.3 million dollars but only cost the school 1,150,000 dollars because of grants given to the school for the project • When the Luther turbine was built, the schools various programs helped to put the turbine together and eventually put it up • It could also bring our college community together too
  16. 16. Saving Energy: Making It A Group Effort • The technology department as well as a welding program and many other people could participate in the building of the turbine as well as helping to erect it • The turbine would also serve as a great teaching tool for the community • The turbine could be a community service job in the city or even extra credit for the school
  17. 17. Saving Energy: The Wind Turbine • Luther is roughly four times the size of the OTC campus and they run off a 80ft. singular wind turbine • Therefore, one this size would be more than satisfactory for OTC. A 50 acre plot in Republic, 20 minutes from Springfield, would be an ideal place for it • It will roughly cost 1.2-1.5 million dollars, that’s including the land, and setting it up • Although it’s a lot of money, in the end it will save so much and offers many great things for OTC
  18. 18. Conserving Water • These next few slides will be about conserving water for OTC
  19. 19. Conserving Water: Checking Leaks • OTC can help the environment and campus with conserving water by checking leaks • This can save tons of water per year • Toilets, sinks, water fountains, and pipes should be checked regularly (Minimum- 1 time per month) • All fountains outside should also be checked for leaks
  20. 20. Conserving Water: Rain Barrels • Another idea for conserving water is rain barrels • Collecting rain water for use is an ancient and traditional practice • Rainwater was collected in simple clay containers reaching as far back as 2,000 years ago through out the world • If we use this old practice today, we can store water for anything that we need. • As drought and aquifer mining begin to call attention to an increasing water crisis, OTC can help change this factor • By doing this, we can save money, water, and conserve water better
  21. 21. Conserving Water: Rain Barrels • With a Constant flow 1 inch per day, OTC would be able to hold 600 galloons of water per 1,000 square feet • That’s about 6,180 galloons a year • They Cost $135 each X 20= roughly $2,700 • If we had that many we could use our own water from the barrels to work the fountains outside, and other objects
  22. 22. Conserving Water: Automatic Flush Systems • The automatic Flush systems that OTC installed are nice, but they waste a lot of water • They go off many times when their not supposed to and even when no one has touched them or gone near them • To save water, OTC should take out these systems or cover up the sensor and have people manually flush the toilets
  23. 23. Conserving Water: Automatic Flush Systems • Money could be saved with all the water being saved from the toilets • Money could be saved by putting stickers or tape paper against the sensors • It would cost time, and energy of the janitors and other helpers • In the end, useless flushing would stop, and OTC would be saving money, and also saving water
  24. 24. Conclusion • OTC is a good campus and has great teachers and classes • It could be even greater if the campus became more environmental friendly and use these suggestions: • Make transportation better by adding more bike racks, and adding green energy speed bumps • Saving energy by using a wind turbine • Conserve water with rain barrels, checking all leaks, and taking away the automatic flush systems
