Saving Wheeler Terrace
The residents Wheeler Terrace insist any residential community with the will, experienced guidance, and the right community partners can achieve greater sustainability. Through strong community leadership and a partnership with CPDC, Wheeler Terrace has been fully remodeled and is inspiring neighboring communities. The proven performance of a ground-sourced geothermal energy system in an affordable housing redevelopment is considered such a triumph. Their geothermal system has reduced energy consumption by 25% and exceeded the criteria needed to earn the coveted U.S. Green Building Council’s LEED Gold certification.
