On May 13, 2011, TD Bank opened the first net-zero-energy retail bank location in the United States in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida. In January of 2013 TD confirmed that the store had achieved net zero operations from January 2012-December 2012! Monitoring continues and the store is maintaining net zero operations.
The TD Bank store achieved highest level of LEED certification, LEED Platinum. The store is based on TD Bank's new green-store design standards, which make new TD Bank locations almost 50% more energy-efficient than the bank's previous design. Each green store features a solar drive-through canopy that produces between 12-18% of the building's annual energy needs and design elements that make it more energy-efficient to help it achieve LEED certification. With LEED Platinum, the building meets the first of two requirements in targeting net-zero energy:
-The branch is energy-efficient, needing 97,000 kilowatt-hours (kWh) of electricity a year to operate.
-Approximately 400 solar panels on the store's roof, drive-through canopy, and adjacent solar field are expected to produce a minimum of 100,000 kWh of electricity a year on site.
Owner & Occupancy
