Northeast Sustainable Energy Association (NESEA) is now accepting entries for the Northeast Zero-Energy Building Award. Zero-energy buildings – buildings that produce as much energy as they consume – represent the cutting edge of environmentally responsible construction. These buildings, which require state-of-the-art energy-efficient construction and renewable energy systems such as solar and wind, are challenging to design and build but can offer comfort and amenities while reducing the building’s impact on the environment.
NESEA will offer a $10,000 cash prize for the best building in the Northeast that can document net-zero energy use while offering a high level of comfort, affordability and reliability.
