Green Building Walking Tour, Portland
Join USGBC Maine for a walking tour of Portland’s East End.
42 Munjoy Street – Come see this 1898 townhouse that has taken on a number of energy efficient improvements. After having a full home energy audit, insulation and weatherization projects were performed. There are three solar flat plate collectors heating the hot water for both sides of the home. There are four solar electric panels offsetting a portion of the electricity.
62 Cumberland Ave – We’ll then proceed to a newly constructed net zero multi-family apartment building utilizing solar hot water, solar electricity and air source heat pumps. This three unit building uses no fossil fuels and produces an excess in electricity most months. There are 90 solar evacuated tubes, 30 solar electric panels and air source heat pumps for heating and cooling in each of the units.
