BRINGING SUSTAINABILITY TO SOUTH WINDS APARTMENTS
RENU Communities™ is an energy solutions provider that delivers decarbonized energy retrofits to existing real estate assets. Through the RENU process, South Winds will be undergoing a substantial effort to reduce carbon emissions by improving the property’s energy efficiency and offsetting the community’s energy consumption through on-site renewable energy production. As a result, South Winds is expected to avoid 3,803 tons of carbon emissions each year.
Some of these improvements taking place around the property include upgraded doors, windows, lighting, insulation, and air sealing.
Going forward, plans call
for a full retrofit of existing HVAC (heating, ventilation and air
conditioning) with advanced cold-climate air source heat pumps to
dramatically reduce energy demand and improve energy
South Winds will be
generating a considerable amount of its own energy using a
renewable source. RENU will install roughly 1,370 kilowatts of
solar energy capacity throughout the community
Following the construction
of the property’s new energy infrastructure, RENU will manage,
maintain and monitor these systems to maximize energy efficiency
and environmental health.
