Any new LEED-certified buildings that aren't so "sustainable"?

Recommended Posts


I was reading this article a while back and featured this photo of a building (not sure of location) that showed the solar panels installed in an inefficient manner. The author claimed little or no thought was taken into account for the solar paneling (which was blocked by other equipment and not angled in the best way).

Is any new or in-progress commercial construction in Houston that may be another example of this?

I'm by no means an expert on this issue, but if anyone could enlighten me and tell me a location, I'd like to see for myself. I don't know how often LEED updates their standards and guidelines for getting LEED credits, but I know they do re-evaluate their guidelines for improvement from time to time.

Thanks in advance - and here is the photo from the article:
