What Makes a Home Use 'Zero Energy'?
Hear the latest on new and cost-effective approaches that make Zero Energy homes more accessible to builders and homebuyers.
'Zero Energy' is defined as: A home that generates as much energy on site as it uses over the course of a year, making it essentially require zero energy.
The old zero energy paradigm prioritized small, highly insulated and air sealed homes with expensive windows. But now that formula has changed, thanks to highly efficient and affordable technologies, lighting, and solar PV panels. This new development has fundamentally changed the way builders and homeowners design and construct zero energy homes, making the potential for widespread adoption within reach.
Join us for this class and learn what it takes to achieve zero energy, the homeowner benefits it provides, and how builders are cost-effectively achieving it in the Pacific Northwest.
