New Columbia Solar and Trammell Crow Company, one of the nation’s largest commercial real estate developers and investors, are proud to announce their 1,029.24 kW system has reached Authorization to Operate (ATO) from PEPCO. The two companies partnered to add a solar installation to The Shops at Dakota Crossing, a neighborhood that combines hundreds of townhomes with a “Main Street” style shopping center.

“We’re thrilled to partner with such an exemplary developer and inspirational leader in commercial real estate,” said Mike Healy, CEO of New Columbia Solar. “This solar array is a prime example of sustainable development - bringing together economic opportunity and commitment to clean energy in another corner of
the nation’s capital.”

New Columbia Solar’s Account Executive, Darren Wyatt, added, “Trammell Crow Company continues to lead the commercial real estate industry, and we’re excited about the opportunity to catalyze their innovative influence in the District and beyond.”

Trammell Crow Company has defined a comprehensive approach to sustainability, and with the installation of solar, New Columbia Solar has supported the company’s sustainability efforts. The project helped the Shops at Dakota Crossing achieve LEED Certification, reduce greenhouse gas emissions, and facilitate the process of energy benchmarking.

In addition to supplying clean energy, the installation of this solar array included a $100,000 warranty extension supplied by Fortis Warranty for the roofs at zero-cost to Trammell Crow Company. New Columbia Solar and Trammell Crow Company expect this project will be the first of many through their commercial solar project partnership in the District.
