Daro to Take Lead on Sustainability

Property Manager Will Now Rely on Wind to Power Its 12 Historic DC Buildings

Washington, DC – September 3, 2019 – EINPresswire.com/ – Daro Management Services, LLC (“Daro”) has announced more aggressive efforts to cut carbon emissions by transitioning to wind power. To accomplish this task, Daro has allied with WGL Energy(“WGL”) and will take part in their WindPower program. The move by Daro will prevent 209 metric tons of carbon dioxide from being released into the atmosphere and will affect the firm’s entire portfolio: 

Sedgwick Gardens Apartments – 3726 Connecticut Avenue NW 
The Parkwest – 2929 Connecticut Avenue NW 
Parkway Apartments – 3220 Connecticut Avenue NW 
Connecticut House Apartments – 4500 Connecticut Avenue NW 
Circle Arms Apartments – 2416 K Street NW

The Rodman Apartments – 3002 Rodman Street NW 
Sixteen Hundred Apartments – 1600 16th Street NW

“Daro has always been a strong proponent of environmental causes,” said Carissa Barry, President of Daro. “From the appliances that we supply to our tenants to the windows that we install throughout our buildings, we always consider the amount of energy that we consume and strive for efficiency. By participating in WGL’s WindPower program, however, we are expanding our focus from efficiency to a model of sustainability that is more global in scope.” 

WindPower is Green-e Energy certified, meets the environmental and consumer protection standards established by the Center for Resource Solutions, and is a recognized Renewable Energy Certificate product. Additionally, wind power produces no air or water pollution and, as of 2018, supported 114,000 jobs throughout the United States, according to the American Wind Energy Association. 

“The transition ensures that all Daro properties are powered by renewable sources,” Barry said. “On top of reducing our carbon footprint, it allows us to better align our values with our day-to-day operations and the opportunity to lead by example.”
