  • As part of the broader Nashville Green initiative, the MDHA announced the incorporation of a new geothermal energy system at the Parkway Terrace Apartment complex.  The Housing Authority estimates that the system will reduce heating costs by 70% and cooling costs by 30%.  In addition, the MDHA has implemented water conservation measures such as new fixtures, faucets and shower heads to reduce consumption up to 50%.  Finally, solar panels are to be installed on two rise structures.
