Station 9 has been under construction for a year and it replaces the building that was originally erected in 1975.

This station has unique energy saving features that make it projected to be 65% more energy efficient than a building meeting the energy code minimum standard. Some of these features include:

  • Solar Tubes in the day room to allow for more natural light
  • HVAC system designed to be highly energy efficient
  • System to recover waste heat water to increase system efficiency
  • Landscaping requiring very little water

This station fits perfectly into what the City of Boise is doing to reduce energy and water usage. It is energy efficient and going beyond that it also utilizes low flow plumbing fixtures throughout the station to save water. That includes using a hot water system with 95% thermal efficiency – the water heaters are designed to minimize the time for hot water to reach a fixture in order to reduce water consumption. Something else worth noting, the solar panels on this station will produce an estimated 33,600 kilowatt hours per year. This is equivalent to the yearly energy usage of three average homes.
