Watch out Frederick, there’s a new market in town. MOMs will be opening it’s fifth store this Spring on Buckeystown Pike. Energy conservation is important to MOMs, which is why we chose to have 20 huge skylights installed throughout the store to lower our energy consumption, reduce our carbon footprint and filter in as much of the nutrient giving natural light that we could. (Not to mention all of the energy efficient equipment that we’re having installed.)
Each skylight, measuring 5′ x 6′, captures sunlight in the dome mounted on the roof, and reflects the light through a series of mirrors down a shaft and into the store’s aisle ways and back offices. The best part about it is that the skylight has been created in such a way that as long as there is day light, no matter the angle in the sky, the skylights can still capture that light and reflect it down. (Of course, the light will be the most “intense” at noon when it is straight overhead.) Do you want to learn more? Visit www.huvco.com for more information.
