Concept House Receives Passive House Certification

A big thank you to everyone who dreamed, inspired, built, sweat and cheered to make the Concept House a reality. In addition to its LEED for Homes Platinum certification the project has recently received its Passive House Certification from the Passive House Institute US (PHIUS).

Solterre's process of 'Study, Shape, Share' continues with live data from the project available via its welserver site. As well, inquiries are always welcome at info@solterre.com.

 

Open House Follow-Up

Last Friday's open house at Solterre Design's Concept House was a great success. Visitors and groups passed through the off-gridhome through-out the day. Solterre staff were on hand to answer questions and point out the many green features.
