DC Green Bank and Flywheel Development are proud to announce the closing of a $2.6 million pre-development and site acquisition loan to support the development of a sustainable commercial hub in the Trinidad neighborhood of Ward 5. The site will serve as the headquarters for Flywheel Development as well as space to bolster emerging local sustainability-focused businesses, including other solar contractors and developers. This project showcases several noteworthy design components aimed at achieving superior energy efficiency and environmental performance. The commercial hub will include rooftop solar and a building-integrated photovoltaic façade with a 102-kW capacity, generating 117.3 MWh of annual energy. The building will be designed to achieve net-zero on-site energy performance and will exceed the District-mandated stormwater management requirements as well. The project is slated to pursue passive house standards, further enhancing its energy efficiency and sustainability.
