With Net-Zero Björklunden efforts underway, we've already made energy efficient upgrades to the lodge, such as LED lighting and new windows. Our wind turbine has been refurbished. We have also installed and are about to commission a 217kW solar array. Faculty and students are measuring the carbon emission offset performed by the sequestration (the natural removal of carbon dioxide from the atmosphere) from the woodland on site which has been placed in perpetual conservation easement with the Door County Land Trust.
Looking ahead, plans are being drawn for the installation of a geothermal system for heating and hot water at the lodge that will significantly reduce reliance on heat from fossil fuel sources.
