1st Equity Bank (Illinois, USA)

Year

2013

As part of its Green Initiative, Skokie’s 1st Equity Bank is undergoing a series of renewable energy and energy efficiency upgrades, including the addition of SunStyle solar shingles and custom photovoltaic wall panels. These green design elements come together to create a cutting-edge system that brings the building closer to its net-zero emissions goal. Today, the solar energy generated by the bank’s roof and facades power all of the bank’s computers. Future renovations will include the installation of electric vehicle charging ports in the bank’s lot as 1st Equity continues to work towards a greener future.
