Mutual Housing California Achieves Zero Net Energy in Woodland

Congratulations to ECOS Member organization Mutual Housing California for being the first multi-family affordable rental development in the nation to receive the U.S. Department of Energy’s Zero Energy Ready Homes certification. California Housing Partnership Corporation’s (CHPC) Green Rental Home Energy Efficiency Network released a case study that highlights Mutual Housing’s success in designing Spring Lake, a 62-unit development for farmworkers in Woodland.

Spring Lake produces as much energy as they use, and has reached between 36.5% and 40.8% above 2008 Title 24 energy requirements.  The property received $5.5 million in permanent funding from the USDA by committing to Zero Net Efficiency.
