“Green” Gas Station in Deerfield

Recently, the Chicago Tribune reported on a “green” gas station.  According to the article, the station earned green certifications from the Green Business League and the village of Deerfield.

The station features energy-saving motion sensors on the light switches and tap faucets, as well as a 52-gallon barrel near the gas pumps to collect rainwater runoff from the overhead canopy.  It also uses energy-efficient light bulbs, has foliage and evergreens, and uses nontoxic cleaning products.  A thermostat that regulates after-hours temperatures has been installed.

Congratulations to the owner of this station for all of his efforts.
