Sustainable Power Plant at Langston Dwellings

Renewable Energy and On-Site Generation

As part of a sustainable redevelopment initiative in the District of Columbia, the DC Housing Authority (DCHA) was awarded a grant to complete a renewable power generation feasibility study to explore opportunities to redevelop an abandoned coal-fired power plant into a renewable energy powerhouse.  The new sustainable power plant would support the redevelopment of Langston Dwellings, the first public housing project in Washington DC (also a historic landmark and listed on the National Register of Historic Places and the District of Columbia Inventory of Historic Sites).

Altura is working with the DCHA to complete a renewable power generation feasibility study to explore renewable energy opportunities. The project includes plans to develop 2-3 potential viable scenarios for successful project redevelopment, using on site renewable power generation technologies such as fuel cells, turbines, combined heat and power, solar thermal and photovolatics, and other advanced power generation technologies.
