Suncoast Credit Union is a community leader in working to reduce energy use through efficiencies and renewable energy!  With over 50 branches in Florida, Suncoast Credit Union has built their newest six locations utilizing a variety of energy savers including: solar panels, LED lighting, groundwater source heat pumps, block and roof insulation, energy efficient windows and plug load timers. Suncoast Credit Union hopes to upgrade several of their branches into Net Zero facilities in the near future, working to generate more energy than they use.

Bakari Chris Kennedy, Energy Efficiency Engineer for Suncoast, explains: “At Suncoast we are seeing the value to our community and our business of developing High Performance Buildings.”  Suncoast Credit Union even works to retrofit older buildings, recently adding solar panels to a seventh branch.
