leaf_house_1.gifPathfinder is providing energy services for a new Zero Net Energy residence to be constructed in Stephentown, NY. Pathfinder's energy modeling will inform early design decisions by evaluating impacts and optimizing energy consumption associated with design considerations, including:

  • Site conditions, floor plan options, massing and orientation
  • Building envelope options including insulation and glazing
  • Passive solar energy strategies
  • Heating and cooling systems
  • Ventilation and human comfort

The home will be sited and designed with accommodation for a solar PV system to generate as much energy as is used annually in the home.
