Public Service Enterprise Group (PSEG) has unveiled its new 65,000ft² sustainable Energy and Environmental Resource Center (EERC) in New Jersey.

20,000ft² will serve as public space while 6,000ft² will be used as exhibit space.

The exhibit space will house interactive exhibits to promote awareness and to meet challenges of climate change while challenging visitors about their carbon footprint.

A mock containment structure is the main exhibit at EERC; the exhibit offers visitors knowledge about nuclear power generation and explores issues like plant safety, security and used fuel management.

The EERC facility is powered in part by solar panels and a wind turbine, and features a multi-purpose room, high-tech classroom space and a lab for use by school groups, teachers and others.

The facility is also outfitted with a data monitor system, which displays information about weather conditions and energy output demonstrating the use of technologies.
