New Net-Zero Homes in Philly
September 10th, 2012 by James Ayre
“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.
