TD Bank in Florida to have first net-zero bank branch powered by sun
Depositing and withdrawing money from your bank could now be a solar powered affair, if you’ve got your stash stored up at the TD Bank in Florida that is. The bank has finally found an opened out area that could be used to generate solar energy for its branch, generating more energy than it actually consumes. This will be the country’s first net-zero branch, that will show up in Ft. Lauderdale. The branch will have power requirements of 97,000 kilowatt-hours a year. The solar panels hooked on to this one will generate a whopping 100,000 kWh a year, taken that they cover the roof, the drive-thru canopy and surround the building too.
And TD Bank has been working green for a while now, busy purchasing renewable energy credits at its dual headquarters offices in Maine and New Jersey. Banking goes greener that than just dollar bills!
