Ashbury Harris Epworth Towers is a senior living retirement community and part of Wesley Woods Senior Living, which owns or operates ten communities throughout north Georgia. Ashbury Harris Epworth Towers (AHET) located in southwest Atlanta, has provided high-quality housing since 1971 and was the first of the Wesley Woods communities to implement sustainable practices in their buildings.
In 2013, AHET contracted with Southface to update a 2011 energy and water assessment. Later that year, AHET was awarded a $50,000 Grants to Green implementation grant to fund the purchase of new ENERGY STAR® appliances and an interior LED lighting retrofit. The money saved from the reduction in utility costs has been reinvested in preventative maintenance and capital projects that they would otherwise be unable to afford.
