SIPs & Solar Pair to Create a Net Positive Energy Structure

From a performance stand point NYRTC, Sacred Oaks generates enough energy to power itself as well as give energy back to the grid.  Also known as a “Net Positive Energy” structure this is achieved by pairing a renewable energy source (solar or geothermal) with a high performing building envelope. The 12.43 kw PV solar panels chosen in this project were installed on the roof to generate energy from the sun.
