Join NESEA for this December Pro Tour of a ZNE solar village, comprising 20 townhouse-style units of modular housing in New York’s Finger Lakes region, hosted by Sustainable Comfort.

About the Event

Through a mix of video, presentation, and small group breakout rooms, we’re using a format that preserves the interactive, behind-the-scenes vibe that has made NESEA’s Pro Tours so popular.

Unlike a traditional webinar, attendees will come with their mics and cameras on: as a participant in this event, you’ll be able to see and hear other attendees, ask content experts questions directly, and meet new people in the NESEA community

About the Project

This women-led development was designed to provide 20 units of stylish, net zero energy housing to the town of Geneva. Homes in the solar village are produced locally, assembled to strict quality and energy use standards while providing living wage manufacturing jobs in Geneva, New York: the project is built on community and resilience. The homes feature SIP (structural insulated panels) walls with vertical strength comparable to steel I-beams), heat pumps, ERVs, and solar roof
 10 kW
PV arrays over membrane roofing.
