Net Zero Energy

What we do now
  • Meet or exceed current energy code.
  • Try to do blower door testing as soon as air barrier is complete, and use blower door test and infrared scanning to work with contractors to improve envelope airtightness. – Keep airtightness testing contractor-friendly.
  • We promote the use of heat pumps/all electric heat, and use biomass when it serves better than all-electric.  We still do some new projects with fossil fuels.
  • Tested some energy modelling software
Immediate Goals
  • Promote Net Zero Energy design/no fossil fuels.  Include in kick-off meeting discussions, generate guide sheet for this, explaining EUI, etc.
  • Verify actual Net Zero Energy achievement of past projects *
2025 Goals
  • Meet or exceed current energy code.
  • Try to do blower door testing as soon as air barrier is complete, and use blower door test and infrared scanning to work with contractors to improve envelope airtightness. – Keep airtightness testing contractor-friendly.

2030 Goals
  • Meet or exceed current energy code.

• Achieve Net Zero Energy on at least 2 projects – one new construction, one renovation. • Eliminate fossil fuel use in new construction projects. Coordinate this goal with our consultants. • Reduce or eliminate fossil fuel use in renovation projects. • Continue testing energy software on recent projects, and compare with real data
• Make every new construction project Net Zero Energy ready or better. • Make every renovation project near net zero energy or better. • No fossil fuels in new construction projects. • Recommend replacement of fossil fuel systems in existing construction whenever possible.
