Green Hammer has designed and built a 12-home net-zero neighborhood in Portland. The energy efficient community will offer residents low-to-no energy costs while occupants enjoy comfortable, quiet homes with fresh, filtered air. The Oaks were built within Rose Villa, a cottage community for senior living set on 22 acres along the Willamette River. The project is an excellent example of how the building industry can help lower carbon emissions. So net-zero buildings are great but are grid-interactive buildings better? The Rocky Mountain Institute has said, we need buildings to be smarter, more flexible, and more dynamic participants of the grid. What are your thoughts?
