Groundbreaking this week on the first Net Zero house in Fairfax City

The bulldozers are on the site, and barring rain, they will begin excavation on Fairfax City’s first net zero home. The house was designed using Passive House principles, and the owner is anticipating that the 20 kw solar array planned for the garage and main roofs will power both the cars and the home. We will be blogging about the project as it moves forward.
