The Rubenstein School of Environment and Natural Resources installed its new green roof -- or more accurately, roofs -- this past week atop their home in the George D. Aiken Center. It's a design ten years in the making that features eight research watersheds, sloped sections that channel unabsorbed water into separate drains for measurement and further data collection.

In 2010, the CEF funded the installation of seventeen 4 kilowatt Solar Photovoltaic Tracker Panels, which will count towards LEED accreditation for the greening of UVM's Aiken building, home of the Rubenstein School of Environment & Natural Resources. The trackers, installed in December, 2010, are operated by AllEarth Renewables under a power purchase agreement and will be purchased outright by UVM in five years.
