TD Bank builds net-zero energy branch

02 February 2011  |  5778 views  |  0 Team meeting

TD Bank is burnishing its green credentials by building America's first "net-zero energy" branch in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.

The building will join a select band of just eight to have been registered net-zero energy by the US department of energy when it opens in the spring.

TD Bank already has 17 branches and offices targeting Leed (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) certification and uses a solar drive-thru canopy that produces nearly 20% of buildings' annual energy needs.

The new branch will also generate energy through solar panels mounted on the its roof and a field of them on surrounding property, meaning that while it will require around 97,000 kilowatt-hours of electricity a year to operate, it will produce at least 100,000 on site.



Bharat Masrani, president and CEO, TD Bank, says: "TD Bank is committed to being an environmental leader and making a positive social impact. Developing green stores isn't just the right thing to do, it makes good business sense too."
