49. Every TD bank has solar panels covring the roof of the drive in

The manager at mine says they use minimal power from the grid most of the year due to the powr generated by the cells.

In 2010, TD Bank became the largest U.S.-based bank to be carbon neutral by constructing energy-efficient buildings according to Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) standards, lowering its energy consumption, and purchasing enough renewable energy credits – from sources like wind, solar and low-impact hydro power – to offset 100 percent of the bank’s annual electricity needs for its Maine to Florida footprint. Other highlights include:


•Opening more than 70 stores and corporate offices that are targeting LEED certification; To date, 41 have been officially designated LEED certified and of those approximately 93 percent are at a Gold or Platinum level
•In 2011, TD opened the first net-zero energy bank in the U.S. in Ft. Lauderdale, Fla.; A LEED Platinum-certified building with 400 solar panels that will produce 100 percent of the building’s annual energy needs
•Solar panel installations at more than 35 stores throughout the footprint generate between 12 to 18 percent of a store's annual energy needs
•In 2010, TD opened Maine’s first LEED-CI Platinum certified building; A 60,000 square-foot contact center in Auburn, Maine
•Receiving a 2010 Green Power Partner Leadership Award from the U.S Environmental Protection Agency for TD Bank’s purchase of enough renewable energy credits to offset 100 percent of the bank’s annual energy use

As of 2011 and moving forward, all new TD Bank stores are designed and constructed to achieve LEED certification. On average, TD opens about 30 new stores a year.
