CRES (the Colorado Renewable Energy Society) has formed partnerships with the Denver Housing Authority (DHA) and Urban Farmers Collaborative to develop a 2.5 acre site in east Denver, into a cutting-edge sustainability park.
What’s a sustainability park? In this case, it’s a showcase of many different renewable energy and sustainability technologies. From solar panels to wind mills, landscaping materials to urban gardening, green building techniques to alternative transportation, this park will be a demonstration mecca.
The park itself will have solar-powered street lights, electric-car charging stations, a shared bicycle station and sustainable rain-water handling. In addition, there will be a community garden, demonstration sites for many different solar technologies, an amphitheater for education and and entertainment and much more.
CRES is a chapter of the American Solar Energy Society and offers a tour of the park as part of their “Showcase Colorado” at the ASES annual conference, WREF2012. The tour will be 1:30 to 5 pm on Tuesday May 15. For more information, contact CRES.
