Shock City’s Commitment to the Environment
A lot of recording equipment means a lot energy usage and, unfortunately, environmental impact. Shock City Studios continues their role as an industry innovator by being the only recording studio in the Midwest dedicated to reducing and offsetting their carbon footprint. Shock City Studios supports renewable energy, energy efficiency and reforestation projects around the world through their Carbonfree® partnership with Carbonfund.org. In addition, Shock City Studios also supports the efforts of their local recycling program, uses LED bulbs entirely throughout their facility, and uses smart devices on their light switches, outlets and air handling systems to further monitor and control their energy usage.
