Clinton Tours Des Moines Station

The Des Moines Area Regional Transit Authority (DART) welcomed Democratic presidential candidate and former Secretary of State and former Sen. Hillary Clinton (D-NY), center, to its LEED Platinum-certified DART Central Station on July 27. Clinton, joined by DART General Manager Elizabeth Presutti, left, and Keith Welch, building supervisor, examined the building’s sustainable features, including the well-loop return for heat pumps connected to geothermal wells that help heat and cool the facility. “We are proud of DART Central Station’s environmentally sustainable site development and construction and enjoyed sharing highlights of the building with Hillary Clinton,” Presutti said. “We are always open to sharing our experiences in public transit, including our efforts in the area of energy efficiency, with community, business and political leaders.” Since its opening in 2012, DART Central Station also has generated more than 86,000 kilowatt hours of energy with rooftop photovoltaic panels and reused 2.8 million gallons of cleaned and reused rainwater—almost half of all the water it used—for tasks such as washing bus platforms.
