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. This effort would explore opportunities to redevelop an abandoned coal-fired power plant into a renewable energy powerhouse.
The new sustainable power plant will support the redevelopment of Langston Dwellings, the first public housing project in Washington DC that’s 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, exploring renewable energy opportunities. This includes plans to develop up to 3 viable scenarios for successful project redevelopment, using on-site renewable power generation technologies such as
