The First Net Zero Energy Retail Store

December 3, 2013

This is cool.

Last week, Walgreens opened up what’s believed to be our nation’s first net zero energy retail store – meaning it’s anticipated to contribute more energy to the grid than it consumes. It sports two wind turbines, nearly 850 solar panels and a geothermal system burrowed 550 feet into the ground. The grand opening was November 21st.
