District of Columbia links to online tours for a collection of “showcase” green roofs demonstrating the best the city has to offer. Over the last six years, Washington D.C. has been quietly developing one of the country’s best green roof programs. An initial demonstration program was followed by a green roof subsidy in 2007, and the result has been an explosion of space-effective, stormwater-slurping green roofs. D.C. has now compiled an inventory of approximately 75 green roofs in the District, each over 1,000 square feet, with total area coverage of ~350,000 square feet.
