Walgreens opens nation’s first net zero energy store

Very interesting… Walgreens opened what is believed to be the first “net zero energy” retail store in the US. The store is located in Evanston, Ill. and features (among others special features) two wind turbines, 850 solar panels and a geothermal system that is buried 550 feet underground. Estimates show that the store will use 200,000 KWH of electricity per year, while it produces about 220,000 KWH annually.
