New Net-Zero Homes in Philly
September 10th, 2012 by James Ayre
Nexus EnergyHomes is holding a “Foundry Court Groundbreaking Event” at the location of the first five NAHBRC Emerald Certified net-zero-capable townhomes ever built in Philadelphia.
“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.
