WHA T  IS NET  ZER O ? A Net Zero building,  also  known  as  “zer o energy” building, means  a  building   wit h a  net  energy consumption and  net  carbon emissions  of  zero  over  the  span  of  a  y ear . The  buildings  can  either   be   connected  to  t he grid  or  independent and additional energy can  be   harvested,  on site,  through a v ar ie ty of  sources: solar,  wind,  etc.  This is  done in  conjunction  with efficient  construction, HVAC,  and water  syst ems. The end  result is  a  home  that  costs significantly  less to  operate,  can   be constructed  quickly,  is  durable,  with  less maintenance and  is more   comfortable  and draft   fr ee.
BUILDING &  DESIGN T o   achieve  net  zero  per f or mance,  the homes   ha v e 12” exterior  walls,  with off-set 2×4  studs,   16” on center. When insulated  with  dense-pack cellulose,  t his provides  an  R-40 wall,  with minimal  thermal  breaks. The  windows are designed  to  provide  for  e x em plar y insulating capability,  while the south  facing   windo ws are chosen  to allow  for  passive thermal gain.  A  solar thermal  hot  water  system  and photovoltaic  solar   panels are  set on the roof,   providing  hot  water and  electr icity , for both   heating and powering  the  home.  Due to  t he extraordinary insulation,  the minimal heat   required  t o warm   the  home,  even  during  the  coldest Maine  wint ers, allows  for the use of  a  mini-split  f orced  air heat   syst em, which  will also   provides  air  conditioning  during   t he summer   mont hs. Setwright is working  closely  with  sustainable designs fr om industry   leaders  K aplan  Thompson  Architects   and  Keiser Homes  resulting  in the most  af f or dable   and  liveable   ne t zero ready  homes   a v ailable.
