Zero Place September 28 2020, 0 Comments
Zero Place is a mixed-use multifamily net zero building in New Paltz in the Hudson Valley set to open in December of 2020. It was the winner of NYSERDA's first-ever Buildings of Excellence Award in 2019 and features 46 residential units and 8,400 square feet of retail space.
With a focus on making the building as energy efficient as possible, the envelope is designed to perform 37% better than code. NY-GEO member Buffalo Geothermal's 15 borehole geothermal system provides 100% of heating, cooling and hot water, and 683 solar panels provide the electricity for this all-electric building.
