Northern Liberties Passive House Tour

Tue, 9/20/2022 - 5:00pm - 6:30pm

Northern Liberties, Philadelphia, PA 19123 (address shared upon registration)

Northern Liberties Passive House is set northerly adjacent to Orkney Park on a historic cartway with most of its ballast block still intact. The project has achieved Pre-Certification for PHIUS+ 2018 and will ultimately be net zero resulting from recent scope additions. This home will be equipped with a 3.24kW PV array coupled with a 10kWh battery back-up system. With the latest in solar tech, the system will be smart enough to draw panel energy first, battery energy second, and as a last resort from the grid. We are so very proud of this custom home and we can’t wait to share it with you.

  • Ralph Loielo, Scribe Design Build, Developer
