Residents Will Move Into DC’s First Passive House In January

Empowerhouse, DC’s first passive house, celebrated its completion today and will be welcoming its first residents in January.

The home was originally constructed on The National Mall by a team of students from Parsons The New School for Design, The New School for Public Engagement, and Stevens Institute of Technology during the Department of Energy’s 2011 Solar Decathalon. After the event ended, the home was moved to 4609 Gault Place NE (map) in Deanwood, where it was completed as a two-family home.
