Delaware Division of Energy and Climate at the Delaware Department of Natural Re- sources and Environmental Control was recently on hand for the ribbon cutting of the Royal Farms’ new state of the art, sustainable convenience store in Ocean View, Delaware built by Emory Hill & Com- pany of New Castle, DE. The store was the fifth con- structed by general contractor Emory Hill & Company, which has also built Royal Farms stores in Glasgow, Georgetown, Bear and Dover, DE and is currently constructing a sixth store near the Philadelphia Airport scheduled to be com- pleted by the end of this year. Several Royal Farms stores constructed by Emory Hill have been built to LEED standards or have received LEED certifi- cation, and all are constructed with sustainable construction. The Ocean View Royal Farms was designed and constructed in accordance with the state- of-the-art, stringent energy and water efficiency standards set forth by the U.S. Green Building Council’s LEED® (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) rating system.

Royal Farms ribbon cutting

low flow toilets, waterless uri- nals, low VOC paint, energy efficient LED lighting fixtures throughout the store, and energy efficient components within the lighted beverage and food cases. Brittany Eldredge, Royal Farms’ sustainability consul- tant said, “This Royal Farms is both energy and water effi- cient, and uses 40% less water than the typical convenience store, and handles its own wa- ter runoff to protect the local Bays and Ocean. The majority of materials used in construc- tion and all the landscaping was purchased locally, the majority of construction de-

bris was reclaimed, or reused, and as they do in each Royal Farms, the waste vegetable oil from the fryers is converted to biodiesel fuel.” John Kemp, president of Roy- al Farms presented donations to nine local charities in honor of their ribbon cutting this week. Besides Phillip Cher- ry, Sussex County Council- man George Cole, Ocean View Mayor Walt Curran and Town Manager Diane Vogel were among the dignitaries who cut the ribbon on this energy and water efficient facility. Royal Farms’ new state-of- the-art facility is at 58 Atlantic Ave. in Ocean View. n
