Zero-Energy Plans LLC. has recently completed construction supervision for the US Park Service’s new Ranger Residence for seasonal employees at the John Day Fossil Beds National Monument in Eastern Oregon. This new net-zero-energy home is also fully accessible, to meet rigorous Federal standards. Now that the energy efficiency of this design has been proven on-site, it is the hope of the Park Service to repeat the project across the country, as a demonstration of how affordable true zero-energy homes can be. This home has now been tested and proven, with a HERS score of just -15, with only half of the available roof space covered with PV panels. Fully loaded, this home would rate minus 40! Is it really possible to get to a minus 100? We are working on it!
