Net-Zero Housewarming

submitted by

Interested in low-carbon housing? Come to the open house, Friday, March 3 from 3:00-8:00 p.m., to see a renewably powered house, just three miles from campus. Stewart Herman, visiting fellow in the Christensen Center for Vocation, and his wife Linda have just renovated a 100-year-old house to be “net-zero”–that is, to make more energy than it uses, by extensive use of solar electricity, geothermal heat, and thick insulation. This is perhaps only the second such renovation in the U.S. The house is located at 2021 Harriet Avenue–just off Franklin, two blocks east of Lyndale. RSVPs by February 25 would be appreciated.
