Los Vecinos in the Chula Vista section of San Diego is the first LEED-certified platinum, 100% solar powered apartment complex. Wakeland Housing and Development Corp. is responsible for creating this affordable housing complex, which offers 1, 2, or 3 bedroom homes on three floors.
A little bit further north in Portland, Oregon is the nation’s first LEED-platinum certified apartment building EVER (according to owner Oakwood Worldwide). The apartment complex is known as “Indigo”. It was also Portland’s first building to sport roof-top wind turbines. These wind turbines generate about 9,000 kilowatt hours, annually (which is only about 1% of the building’s total energy usage). They also have a roof-top gardening system that utilizes collected rainwater to keep plants watered.
