Sustainable Energy Fund Net Zero Energy Building Tour

Thu, 3/3/2022 - 4:00pm - 6:00pm

4250 Independence Drive, Schnecksville, PA 18078

This in-person tour is a community engagement event for the GBU's Lehigh Valley Community Council. All are welcome!

Join us as we tour the first net-zero building in the Lehigh Valley region and one of only a few in Pennsylvania.

Sustainable Energy Fund (SEF) constructed the Net-Zero Building on a foundation of cost-effective energy efficiency principles and complemented it with on-site solar generation. Through this project, SEF has demonstrated that commercial property owners can build high-efficient, low-impact commercial buildings at market rate.

With an Energy Star score of 97, SEF’s NZB is more efficient than 97% of other buildings within its property type. SEF achieved energy efficiency with a tight building envelope and increased insulation, providing superior comfort within the building space. Energy recovery ventilation sustains indoor air quality, and high-efficiency HVAC equipment and an integrated building automation system maintain and manage this comfort to the occupants’ preference. A 149kW solar array powers the building, reducing its environmental impact.

John Costlow, President of SEF will provide a brief presentation about the how and the why SEF chose to go Net Zero, followed by a tour of the building.

The event is free but be sure to register as space is limited due Covid-19 precautions.
