Energy Efficiency made Simple

Parade Street Commons East

The newly completed project, Parade Street Commons East consist of 40 two and three bedroom units, as well as eight homes designed for handicapped livability. The cost of rent ranges between $230 a month to $850 a month.

“It’s (called) passive housing, Passive housing means the most energy-efficient methodology of construction known to man now. They will benefit from that by lower utility costs. The industry says that at the end of the day you can cool it in the middle of summer with an ice cube and keep it warm in the middle of winter with a candlestick. That’s a little bit of an exaggeration, but it’s super energy efficient.”
