Net Zero Energy Leader
The New Buildings Institute recently recognized Point Energy Innovations as a Zero Net Energy (ZNE) leader for work on ZNE schools in California.
“Point Energy Innovations (PEI) is a leader in driving schools toward ZNE,” NBI said.
“The firm’s design of the Newcastle Elementary School, under the Prop 39 ZNE School Retrofit Pilot Program, went well beyond a simple retrofit coupled with massive photovoltaics. The team relentlessly pursued deep green measures achieving an energy use intensity of 16 (saving 36%), providing cost-effective ZNE as a package, and a healthier, quality environment for students and teachers.”
The Prop 39 ZNE School Retrofit Pilot Program provides state funding to public schools and community colleges to improve energy efficiency and increase their use of clean energy.
