Weekly Press: A peak a PECO’s green roof in the sky

PECO installed the green roof earlier this year. Among other benefits, it mitigates storm water runoff, moderates building temperatures year-round, and, yes, also provides a habitat for wildlife.

PECO now has the largest green roof ever built on a pre-existing structure in an urban area in all of Pennsylvania. How the project went from the drawing board to installation in just one year is a story of encouragement, opportunity and collaboration.
