Presidium Group, a real estate investment and management firm, is making good on its promise to renovate Easton Hills apartment complex near White Rock Lake, which — among other things — has been rebranded as The Grove at White Rock Lake.

Presidium Group, LLC, hosted a commissioning ceremony on Wednesday morning to cut the hypothetical ribbon on its recently installed Microturbine Combined Heat and Power (MCHP) technology.

The new turbine will provide roughly 18 percent of the power demand of the property. It will also produce excess heat for the property’s hot water system. Presidium plans to install additional turbines and green energy solutions at this property.

MCHP systems can serve as an economic benefit for large energy users through lower energy costs as well as protection from volatile energy prices. MCHP technology can also protect the property from power outages through its onsite generation and dependability.

The event drew Texas House Representative Kenneth Sheets and County Judge Clay Jenkins, who both spoke about the significance of this installation for East Dallas and for the future of sustainability initiatives in Texas.

Presidium is also in the middle of several interior and exterior upgrades to the complex, totally somewhere in the $1.7 million range. Improvements including new flooring, hardware, plumbing, lighting fixtures and appliances, as well as improvements on landscaping, property amenities and leasing office.
