GreenHomeNYC’s August Tour: Net Zero in Brooklyn

July 27, 2015


VISIT A Certified Net Zero Capable Passive House, the R-951 Residence

Want to know more about the first building in NYC to achieve both Passive House Institute certification and NYSERDA Net Zero capable rating? Join us, Wednesday, August 5th for a tour with Paul Castrucci Architect, Further, Inc. and Aeon Solar. Explore this newly constructed three family ultra-efficient row house that brings together modern aesthetics, sustainable design and a 12 KW solar array predicted to generate enough renewable energy to meet or exceed each apartment’s annual energy demand.


As seen at http://R-951.com, state of the art building envelope, high efficiency systems and Energy Star appliances were used throughout R-951, which has benefited from NYC’s Green Zoning Initiative and a NYSERDA New York Energy Star Certified Home Tier 3 grant. Residents will benefit from a healthy, quiet comfortable all-electric home, private outdoor space, rainwater collection system, tax breaks, and much more!

This tour is supported by sustainable building proponents at GreenHomeNYC, the NY Passive House Meetup, Solar One and NYSERDA EDGE. More information, contacts, images and press release are at http://R-951.com.

{Green Careers} August 2015 Meeting: LinkedIn Strategies

July 28, 2015

linkedinHard work, determination and patience have always been virtues that contribute to successful careers. However, today’s job market allows for increased visibility and opportunities for personal branding that go beyond the traditional resume. How can you create a positive and effective online perception for employers and open the door to more opportunities?


LinkedIn provides every rising star a platform to sell their education, experience and goals as a product. Few job seekers use their LinkedIn profile to its full potential, but GreenHomeNYC’s upcoming August Green Careers event aims to turn that profile into a true sales brochure.


Join us for a presentation lead by John Crant,  author, career coach and founder of SelfRecruiter.com with years of experience helping job seekers achieve their goals. John will be providing insight on building an online brand for a job in the sustainability industry as well as strategies and tools to grow your profile’s impact and network reach.


Date: Tuesday, August 11, 2015
Time: 6:30 – 8:00pm with networking afterwards
Place: DORMA Design Center, 1040 Avenue of the Americas, (between 39th & 40th) 22nd Flr, NYC
