  • 2” hard board foundation insulation.  10” steel reinforced poured concrete walls, 3” closed cell foam insulation on the interior walls
  • Storm shelter built into basement with 5.5” thick concrete steel reinforced shell and a heavy duty steel door.
  • Photovoltaic system with 53 LG panels rated at 310 watts each for a total rating of 16.43 KW.  Each panel has an an Enphase inverter.
  • Roof with 14 gage standing seam metal roof with no penetrations.  Open cell spray foam insulation applied directly to the underside of the roof decking and structural support.
  • All electric house with no natural gas utility plumbed into the house.  Wired for 2 car chargers in the garage, each with 60 amp - 220 volt breakers (Level 2 capable).
  • Geothermal ground source heat pump forced air HVAC rated at 4 tons with hot water preheat.  Induction stove top.  All LED lighting.
  • SunSource was the general contractor and provided one stop shopping for the property purchase, architecture design and construction.  SunSource was experienced in sustainable building design and understood the concept of net-zero energy construction.  Two SunSource representatives will be in attendance to answer questions.
John Lueders' background is that of a metallurgical engineer in the heat treatment of steel. This is a very energy intensive field where John gained an appreciation the cost and environmental impact of energy.  During these working years, John educated himself on the issue of climate change and how close we are to a tipping point.

We would appreciate your RSVP to help us plan.  (Thanks if you have already RSVP'd)
