Green C-store, Car Wash coming to Wisconsin

GRAND CHUTE, Wis. -- A Good To Go ECOnvenience Center, featuring a earth friendly car wash and automated c-store, is expected to open here in the next few months, the Post-Crescent reported.

"There have been inevitable delays due to weather," company spokeswoman Annie Holschuh told the newspaper. "We had to wait for the snow to clear to put the roof on." The Earth-friendly car wash and automated c-store are now slated for a May 1 opening.

The car wash may be the first with a Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certification in the country, store owners Steve Nikolas and Larry LeMieux told the paper. The pair will apply for a silver LEED rating, which ensures a building is energy efficient and uses environmentally friendly materials, the report stated.

"The water-saving car wash is going to use two gallons of water as opposed to the average 45 gallons a traditional car wash uses," Holschuh said, noting that it will be the first of its kind in the state, followed by another location opening in Watertown later this spring.

In addition, the automated Good To Go c-store features natural and LED lighting, pervious concrete, a rooftop garden and water reclamation systems, the report stated.
