Live Green, Live Lindy
Lindy Communities Partners With New America Power To
Purchase 100% Green Energy Throughout The Lindy Portfolio
Lindy Communities and you—working together toward a greener tomorrow
Jenkintown PA — (April 7th, 2015) Brothers, Alan and Frank Lindy of Lindy Communities and Lonnie Barish of New America Power have announced that Lindy Communities will purchase 100 percent green power to offset 100 percent of the Property Managers consumption for the next four years. The purchase reflects Lindy Property Managements longstanding commitment to promoting environmental sustainability.
The Lindy Communities Team is a leader in developing and implementing green initiatives in the Greater Philadelphia market. We believe, as property owners and managers, we are responsible for creating a sustainable environment for thousands of our residents and their families. Lindy Communities strives to maximize every opportunity to reserve a better place to live for our future generations. We are dedicated to providing leadership, guidance, and service to reduce environmental impacts, support sustainable business practices and improve our communities’ carbon footprint.
Lindy Communities have committed to purchasing 23,000 megawatt hours (MWh) of renewable energy credits per year. The power supported by the credits is sourced from wind farms located in the Midwest region of the United States. The amount of green power purchased by the management company Lindy Communities will offset nearly 16,982 metric tons of carbon dioxide emissions — equivalent to avoiding the annual carbon dioxide emissions of almost 2,336 U.S. homes or more than 3,575 passenger vehicles, 6,087 tons of waste diverted from landfills; the drop in carbon dioxide emissions from displacing 1,910,840 gallons of gasoline; or the carbon sequestered annually by 13,919 acres of U.S. forest.
Renewable energy credits, or RECs, are how green power is tracked and traded and is the accepted way to reduce carbon emissions in North America. When a renewable energy facility produces one MWh of electricity and adds it to the power grid, one corresponding REC is also generated. Organizations that purchase RECs corresponding to their electrical consumption can be assured that an equivalent amount of clean power was generated at a renewable facility and added to the power grid. RECs are endorsed and purchased by the EPA, Fortune 500 companies and NGOs.

In 1961, second-generation Philip Lindy, and brother Alan, built Westgate Arms in Jefferson, Montgomery County. Almost 50 years later, Westgate Arms remains proudly offered by the Lindy Family. From the 1950s to the 1960s, the Lindy Brothers built over 1000 new apartments and 2000 new homes. During the 1960’s, 70’s, and 80’s, together, Philip and wife, Annabel, expanded Lindy Property Management throughout Philadelphia and surrounding counties.
In the 1980s, third generation Frank and Alan came on board. The family’s services extended to new construction (The Enclaves), Student Housing (YoNo and Academia Suites), for sale condominiums, and a full-service Senior lifestyle housing at The Yorkhouse. We are equally proud of the refined life-‐style at The Park at Westminster and Warrington Crossings in Bucks County, the Crossings at Stanbridge in Lansdale, and other premier communities throughout Philadelphia and Montgomery Counties.
Times have changed, but our commitment to service and superior housing value remains steadfast.
Lindy Communities, now and into the future, dedicated to excellence.
