A Year in their Passive House
2012 CT Zero Energy Challenge winners open their doors to share this remarkable home with you.
What's it like to live in a home that produces more energy than it uses? After a year living in the first certified Passive House in CT the Honig family in Harwinton is inviting you to come see their home and hear what its like to live there. Their home won the 2012 CT Net Zero Challenge and was described by Enoch Lenge of the CT Energy Efficiency Fund as, "the most efficient and highest performing house we've ever seen." While the energy savings are remarkable, this home is bright, open, and exceptionally comfortable without relying on complicated equipment, though it does make smart use of technology.
This tour is part of NESEA's annual Green Building Open House inviting folks to visit high performance homes across the Northeast. You can learn about related events there.
