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, 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
