“We are excited about Foundry Court and the innovative work that Nexus Energy Homes is doing to bring sustainably designed, net-zero homes to Philadelphia,” Mayor Nutter says of the project.
The townhomes were designed and built to feature a wide variety of green technology: geothermal heat pumps, photovoltaic solar panels, super insulated building shells, rooftop gardening, water reclamation, state of the art electronic, web-based controls and monitoring systems, and Energy-Star rated appliances.

For the fate of the sons of men and the fate of beasts is the same; as one dies, so dies the other. They all have the same breath, and man has no advantage over the beasts; for all is vanity. - Ecclesiastes 3:19
