The Home of the Future in the Heart of History
“Housing Innovation Award winners such as High Performance Homes are leading a major housing industry transformation to zero energy ready homes. This level of performance is the home of the future because it improves the way Americans live by substantially reducing or eliminating utility bills, ensuring engineered comfort way beyond traditional homes, protecting health with a comprehensive package of indoor air quality measures, and helping maximize the largest investment of a lifetime,” said Sam Rashkin, Chief Architect at the U.S. Department of Energy’s Building Technologies Office.
The Rochelle features an impressive package of high-performance building technologies that contribute to at least 40-50% more energy efficiency than the typical new home. This includes DOW POWERHOUSE™ solar shingles, tight building envelopes with structurally insulated panels, geothermal heating and cooling systems, and energy-efficient appliances. A comprehensive indoor air quality system compliant with EPA’s Indoor airPLUS label also provides important health protection. According to the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), every certified Zero Energy Ready Home has a comprehensive package of measures to help minimize dangerous pollutants, provide continuous fresh air, and effectively filter the air you breathe. A smart home technology package is also included in the homes, enabling energy monitoring and complete heating, ventilating, and air conditioning control, as well as remote control of lighting, thermostats, and security from any smart device.
Zero Energy Ready Home Building
The Rochelle at The Links at Gettysburg model achieved a Home Energy Rating System (HERS) Index Score of 23, meaning the home will consume nearly 60 percent less energy than an average new home. Based on the HERS Report, this home will save approximately $4K in the first year of ownership, $50K over 10 years of ownership, and $200K over 25 years of ownership. When you add the upfront incentives for investing in renewable energy, the system will save a homeowner more than $70k in the first 10 years of ownership alone. Annual savings calculations over time include an annual electricity cost increase of 5.5%. The US national average increase of energy cost over the last 30 years is 7.5% per the Energy Information Agency (eia.gov). Full Case Study
