Solar Row Short-Term Test Report


JANUARY 29, 2008 This report was reviewed, finalized, and presented to the builder but it was never published.

Wonderland Development has constructed a new “near zero energy” row home design in North Boulder consisting of 9 units: one 5-plex and two duplexes. NREL has performed short-term tests and installed long-term monitoring equipment in two of these units and plans to do the same in one additional unit. This report describes the results of the short-term tests in the south unit and an interior unit of a 5-plex which was completed in December, 2007. Within this report “unit 1” refers to the south end of the 5-plex, address 4657 and “unit 2” refers to the adjacent interior unit, address 4659. Future reports will describe the results of building energy simulations and long-term performance monitoring of the homes.

Key features of each unit in the 5-plex are a well-insulated building envelope, solar hot water and space heating with condensing boiler backup, “staple-up” radiant floor heating, a photovoltaic system, and a mini-split AC system.
