Colorado’s greenest library

I’m not sure why The Denver Post is calling it “carbon-positive,” when in fact the point seems to be to make it carbon-neutral (or better), but the Anythink Brighton library (Adams County CO) seems pretty amazing.  It has a geothermal HVAC system under its parking lot, a whack of solar panels–and it hopes to be selling energy back to the grid within a year.  Substantial amounts of energy, according to Pam Sandlian Smith, the library’s director.

To which I say: very cool.
