Going Green Means Saving on Gas

The SunTrust Center building at 919 E. Main Street went green, replacing its boilers with a tankless hot water and heating system. The system will reduce natural gas consumption by 30 percent, paying for itself in less than six years.

This combination system heats water on demand and heats the air at the same time.

To aid with stormwater management, the building also has an 11,000-square-foot green roof to reduce runoff and improve insulation.
