Solar Panels

Lindy Communities is a leader in solar panels, winning the 2010 Green power Award by the Citizens for Pennsylvania Future (Penn Future). Residents of Eola Park,  Fountain Gardens, Gateway Towers, Longwood Manor, Sedgwick Gardens, and Academia Suites enjoy hot water supplied by the Sun, collectively saving enough Natural Gas “to replace over 1,500,000 miles driven by an average passenger vehicle.”

Nine commercial size solar hot water systems were installed on Lindy properties and were estimated to save about 33,000 ccfs of natural gas per year. This is equivalent to zeroing out natural gas emissions from about 41 Pennsylvania households. According to Alan Rushforth of Rushforth Engineering, “This is equivalent to zeroing out…Hat’s off to Lindy Properties for their attention to smart energy saving strategies and to environmental preservation.”

Our mission is your
Carbon Footprint

Your community’s common area and exterior lighting, amenities, and 100% of the electricity are generated by Renewable Wind Power.  Among communities that pay PECO, 100% of the electricity for every apartment is also generated by Wind power, at no additional cost to yourself.  Collectively, the annual Wind Powered Carbon Dioxide savings surpasses the emission that generated by 11,000 vehicles.

Separately, heating and hot water equipment is so efficient, that for most apartments, Natural Gas heat and hot water costs average less than $25 a month!  All the common areas, exterior lighting, and much of your apartment is lit by Energy Efficient LED.

Electricity Generated by Wind Power

Every Philadelphia and suburban Lindy Community supplies Electricity Generated 100% by renewable wind power this includes every amenities area, leasing office, and exterior lighting throughout. More impressive, wind power also generates 100% of all the electricity for every apartment at the Towers at Wyncote, Meadowbrook, Park at Westminster, Haverford, Longwood Manor, Bromley House, Mt. Air Place, Sedgwick Gardens, Academia Suite, Regency House, York House, and York North.

Collectively, Lindy Communities in the Philadelphia area and NJ office campus generate by renewable wind power, 74 Million kilowatts of electricity.  The chart below illustrates what 74 Million kilowatts translates into.
