Artspace Solar Gardens (Salt Lake City) This unique $5.9 million dollar, 35,000 square foot project in Salt Lake includes 30 one- and two-bedroom residential units along with 10,000 square feet of commercial space. It is anticipated to be the first net-zero multi-family building in Utah with on-site solar production.
The solar array produces 312-kilowatts from 334 rooftop solar panels and 525 solar panels on an adjacent surface parking structure. This will reduce the building's footprint along with reducing costs for its low- and moderate-income tenants.
The reclaimed site was previously a metal scrapyard and recycling facility. This project will provide an opportunity to educate the public about renewable energy while demonstrating how a mixed-use, high-performance building can be powered by on-site solar energy.
Artspace Solar Gardens includes other sustainable elements such as highly-efficient building insulation, recycled materials, low VOC paints and finishes, and energy- and water-saving features. The HVAC system is a Mitsubishi City multi-variable refrigerant flow system that was selected for its efficiency and ability to be powered by solar PV panels. The project has direct access to a bike path and local mass transit, further encouraging a greener, healthier lifestyle.
The project was designed by MJSA Architects and built Pentalon Construction.

Community-Scale Wind Energy Solutions in OregonLime Wind is a locally distributed energy project that produces enough electricity from wind each year to power 800 households, ultimately providing a reliable source of "green" power at rates that are at or below those of traditional sources. It was developed by a small, family-owned operator in the very rural community of Lime in eastern Oregon.
In support of this project, Wells Fargo provided a $2.29 million New Markets Tax Credit (NMTC) equity investment, utilizing $8.4 million in NMTC allocation provided by an affiliate of Albina Bank, a longtime Wells Fargo CDFI partner.
