Construction crews have begun preparing the site for a new 50-unit affordable apartment rental community on the southeast corner of Hermosa Street and Westwood Avenue in Lindsay. The rental project, known as Palm Terrace, is being built by Self-Help Enterprises (SHE) and is projected to be completed by fall 2018, said Sonia Sanchez, communication and outreach specialist with SHE. Sanchez said Palm Terrace is a highly energy-efficient and transit-friendly project. Sustainable features include solar PV, graywater recycling system, water conservation measures, and a vanpool program in partnership with the California Vanpool Authority that will transport residents from Palm Terrace and the surrounding community to and from work. The project’s solar PV system will offset the power used in the common area, residential loads, and community center, making Palm Terrace a grid-neutral Zero Net Energy project.
