On Saturday, October 1st, Federal, State, Local, and Community officials joined Englewood CDC and their partners as they opened what is prescribed to be Indiana's first Net-Positive Energy apartment building. With individual unit HERS Ratings approaching -20 (indicating positive energy), the group is confident the building will perform to the difficult to achieve standard.
The project utilized standard green technologies like Solar PV, LED Lighting, and Natural Daylighting/Shading, as well as innovative technologies like Flat-Plate Solar Collectors, Transpired Solar Collectors and Variable Speed ASHP Heating and Cooling.
Paired with conservation and consumption strategies that encourage the efficient use of energy, these technologies will allow Oxford Place to achieve what has not yet been accomplished in the State of Indiana.
Congratulations to Englewood, TWG Development and all their partners.
*Net Positive verification pending one-year operating period.
