Over the past few months, you may have been tracking the progress at Yale Acres Model Building on our blog. Phase 1 of the project has been fully implemented, and all systems on the model building are fully functional. If you haven’t been following, Phase 1 of the project involved fully gutting and rehabilitating the model building with energy efficient building materials and practices, and geothermal HVAC, Solar PV, and Solar Thermal hot-water heating have been installed to mitigate the reduced energy load. The Energy Star upgraded building now saves 86% of the former energy usage. The most recent development is that the technologies installed in the building are monitored and verified in a real-time energy performance tracking system. During a later Phase of the Yale Acres project, the building will come closer to its “net-zero” goal through the addition of fuel cell technology.
We are proud to announce the Open House on October 16th at 12:00 noon, where tours of the model building will be given, food and refreshments will be consumed, and the companies and technologies involved in making this happen will be showcased.
The event marks the wrap-up of Phase 1. The Meriden Yale Acres project is a 3 phase project which will eventually expand Energy Star upgrades and renewable technologies to all the buildings in the complex.
If you are an interested professional, community member, or otherwise curious about the project then you are invited to attend the open house. Please RSVP using the information located below, or you can download the invitation with the link provided. Please share with other potentially interested parties, and we hope to see you there!
