The Georgetown Station project for the Capital Area Rural Transportation System (CARTS) is an innovative model for a low impact mass transit center that hopes to inspire the use of public transportation and responsible energy use. Strategically located on a highly visible piece of land, formerly the Georgetown dump along IH-35, the station uses its site to demonstrate what can be accomplished through the use of renewable resources and reused materials. The project uses a 24.2 kW rooftop mounted photovoltaic system along with a 60-foot tall 2.4 kW wind turbine to generate its electric power. An 11,000-gallon cistern harvests rainwater to irrigate the landscape. Two electric vehicle charging stations are installed for public use.
