Sustainability

How is West Side Dental in Decorah going green?

Solar


We have installed solar panels on our south roof. This will greatly reduce our carbon footprint. We expect to reduce our electric usage by an additional 25%.

Energy Tracking


Since the spring of 2009 we have been measuring our power usage on a circuit by circuit basis in real time. We use the SmartGreen system to track our usage. Through the process of discovery we have reduced our power usage by over 20%.

Paperless

We went nearly paperless by implementing a digital record system. We went from ordering multiple boxes of chart and note paper to filing everything electronically. What little paper we still use gets shredded and recycled.
