City of Oakland Green Building Case Study on ZETA
This is a 2-page brochure on ZETA
The 1,540 square foot live/work townhome on Lancaster Street was designed as a model for extreme energy efficiency. Using a holistic approach, which incorporated site orientation; passive heating and cooling; thermal storage; an ultra efficient building envelope; rigid, cellulose and spray insulation; and photovoltaic solar power, ZETA Communities built Oakland’s first net zero energy project. With over one year of monitoring performed by the U.S. Department of Energy, the Lancaster Street Live/Work Townhome has continued to demonstrate positive energy performance. In addition to the building having no net energy consumption, the building also provides 20% additional power back to the grid. This outstanding accomplishment earned ZETA Communities a LEED for Homes Platinum Rating, the 2009 Green Builder of the Year grand award, the PCBC Gold Nugget Award for Net Zero Energy, and the AIA San Francisco Energy and Sustainability Merit Award.
