Portland, ME (July 2012) — The Portland International Jetport has won LEED Gold certification — Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design. The Jetport is only the second commercial airport in the country to receive this coveted LEED Gold designation.
A key element in the Jetport design is energy-saving environmental controls installed by Mechanical Services and Maine Controls. Our state-of-the-art technology helps the Jetport manage high-efficiency systems as part of its recent $77 million expansion.
Maine Controls’ Energy Management System supports the Jetport’s geothermal impressive heating and cooling system, which is the largest in Maine. The system absorbs the earth’s heat in winter and uses it in summer. It is expected to save the Jetport 50,000 gallons of fuel oil annually.
