Interior shot of home

Eco-Home at Hawk Ridge was a solar model home demonstrating energy efficiency, renewable energy and green building. This project was a joint effort between Wagner Zaun Architecture, Women in Construction LLC, Conservation Technologies, with support from several other local agencies and consultants. The home was used for demonstration and educational purposes, and the design and construction methods serve as an example of how to build low-energy, high performance homes with attention to conservation and health of people and the environment. The overall concept features site-sensitive passive solar design with a high-performance thermal envelope, a grid-tied solar PV array, a solar domestic hot water system, and a hybrid heating design.
