October 29, 2014, Chantilly VA - Honda of Chantilly is excited to announce the long-awaited completion of its latest green technology: the addition of a 125-foot wind turbine. This is the most recent in a long line of environmentally conscious efforts at the dealership.

Since opening earlier this year, Honda of Chantilly has continually strived to reduce its environmental impact. As Geoff Pohanka of the Pohanka Auto Group says, “Energy is finite – at least fossil fuels – and what we need to do is be smarter in how we consume them.”

This is certainly the goal with the addition of the dealership’s new wind turbine: a Renewagy VP-20. With a capacity of 20 kilowatts, this turbine will supply electricity directly to Honda of Chantilly, as well as to the grid, to allow for less dependence on traditional fossil fuels.


Green Technology is Central to Dealership’s Plans

The addition of this wind turbine is a first in the area. As Ben Kamm of the Pohanka Auto Group points out, “Not a lot of dealers would put a windmill in, because of the money costs to initially start this.” At Honda of Chantilly, though, green features have always been a part of the plan.

Even while zoning the property before construction, the dealership’s plans were always centered on energy efficiency. Now, the addition of the turbine represents a great leap forward. Thanks to its pitch control system and internet monitoring, the VP-20 is unique in its market and stands as one of the most technologically advanced systems available today.

Combined with Honda of Chantilly’s other futuristic technologies, which include everything from systems for reducing and recycling water usage to LED lights and indigenous landscaping, this American-made turbine is part of an environmentally conscious system that the dealership is proud to stand behind.
