The Zero Net Energy Production Builder Demonstration project provides guidance to five residential home builders on building to specifications that enable a home to achieve ZNE, including assistance with design options, building practices and modeling analysis.

This first report details the design and construction process of a ZNE home built by Habitat for Humanity of San Joaquin County. Key features of interest are integrated design solutions, extensive advanced framing with a very low framing factor, and a ZNE package that saved money relative to the builder’s standard practice.
