Photo Update! Model Building Renovations and Energy Upgrades Nearly Completed

The Model Building also known as Building #3, is nearly finished.  There are still some interior modifications that are currently near completion, but the solar thermal, solar PV, and geothermal systems are installed on the building.  Here is a quick photo rundown about the latest work being done at the Yale Acres Net-Zero energy retrofit project:
