Credit Union is Serious about Saving Energy

UnknownSuncoast Credit Union operates solar PV systems at six of its branch locations in Florida. The company is tracking the energy usage to determine if some of the locations are actually net-zero-energy facilities.

In addition to solar power, one location – the 5,000-sq-foot Suncoast branch in Riverview, Florida – also features geothermal cooling from wells drilled below the building. A heat pump draws off cooling temperatures from the water and then returns the water back to the aquifer below, reports the Tampa Tribune.

In addition to solar power and geothermal cooling, the facility is heavily insulated and illuminated with high efficiency LEDs.
