Moe's Earns LEED Silver Green Building Certification
Moe's Southwest Grill in Williston, VT was awarded LEED Silver certification making it the first restaurant in the chain and in the state of Vermont to earn this high honor.
By using less energy and water, LEED certified buildings save money for families, businesses and taxpayers; reduce greenhouse gas emissions; and contribute to a healthier environment for residents, workers and the larger community.
Some of the green design and construction features that positively impacted the project itself and the broader community include LED lighting, energy efficient cooking equipment, and a technologically advanced air control system that they anticipate will reduce energy consumption by 22 percent.
"It has been an amazing experience building a green restaurant from the ground up," says Sueayn Wood, local franchise owner. "We're proud to offer our guests a well-rounded eco-friendly dining experience, from the building design to our sustainable ingredients like grass-fed steak, grain-fed pork and organic tofu."
