NESEA Green Buidlings Open House EVENT Oct 1, 2011
PRESS RELEASE – Western MA –
While the cool autumn weather of October 1st seems like it is still far away, here at NESEA things are heating up as we prepare for this year’s Green Buildings Open House. With the help of dedicated organizers throughout NESEA’s 10-state region, 128 host sites have already registered to participate in the event. We are hoping to reach our goal of over 600 hosts this year, so we’re off to a great start!
There are already a lot of interesting locations on board including schools and quite a few buildings that have achieved net zero or near-net zero energy, candidates for the Thousand Home Challenge (www.thousandhomechallenge.com
Speaking of Deep Energy Retrofits, NESEA is excited to be collaborating with National Grid as they continue their great work with their Deep Energy Retrofit Pilot Program in Massachusetts and Rhode Island. We are pleased to announce that National Grid has agreed to include some of their project buildings in Green Buildings Open House. Thank you, National Grid!
