Two Washington, D.C.-based organizations have announced their contribution in facilitating a green economy as the city transitions to running completely on renewable energy while creating a sustainable environment for its residents.
On May 17, DC Green Bank and Flywheel Development announced the closing of a $3.2 million partnership to finance the installation of solar panels at six condominium communities in Southeast Washington.
The Fairfax Village community will host most of the solar installations, in addition to other low-to-moderate income individuals residing in Wards 7 and 8. This solar energy initiative will not only reduce a considerable financial burden, but will also create job opportunities for residents of Southeast Washington, said DC Green Bank CEO Eli Hopson.
