The Lofts at McKinley, an adult living center in Phoenix was built to provide sustainable and budget friendly living spaces to active adults over 55 years. Residents get part of their electricity covered by solar electricity; 182 panels on the roof provide approximately 6,500 kWh of electricity each month. Developers of the Lofts at McKinley decided to install solar on their project because it was “the right thing to do.” Residents also get the benefit of knowing that their electricity comes from solar power, and that the solar is having a positive impact on the environment. Each month the community saves over 14,500 lbs of CO2 and 66lbs of other green house gases from polluting our atmosphere. The environmental savings are equivalent to 15,700 miles not driven.
