TD Bank selects Lumos LSX for their retail solar drive-thru structures
August 6, 2014
Lumos Solar, a Boulder, Colorado based design-centric solar product company, announced today that TD Bank has chosen Lumos LSX frameless solar modules to cover their retail drive-thru structures. These structures provide essential shade and protection from the elements for bank customers as well as producing clean, renewable energy, helping TD Bank meet their sustainability goals.
TD Bank is one of the 10 largest banks in the U.S. and is customer focused with 1,300 locations from Maine to Florida for their 8 million customers. TD Bank’s goal is “to be as green as their logo” by working with their employees, customers and communities to reduce their environmental impact. In 2010, TD Bank became the first North America-based bank to become carbon neutral and in 2012, they decided that all new retail locations in the U.S. must achieve LEED certification.
To achieve LEED certifications, all new branches must integrate solar. As these branches are a visual representation of the Bank and their green efforts, aesthetics was an important selection criterion in their choice of solar panels. After seeing the Lumos LSX modules installed on the SolarScapes structure at Greenbuild 2013 in Philadelphia, the Bank decided that LSX was exactly what they were looking for. With its frameless design, LSX modules will seamlessly integrate into the architecture of TD Bank buildings. Other features critical to TD Bank were the ability to weatherproof the array with LSXSeal and module durability.
Constructed of 6mm tempered solar glass, LSX is the strongest module in the industry. Capable of withstanding 113psf, LSX will easily hold up to the heaviest snow and wind loads. In addition, LSX modules have achieved a Class 4 Hail Rating, making them the most impact resistant modules in the industry.
“TD Bank’s green efforts are truly inspirational and a great example of real leadership in sustainability,” says Scott Franklin, CEO of Lumos Solar. “We are very proud to have the opportunity to work with such a progressive company and help them achieve their goal of incorporating renewable energy into all of their new retail locations.”
