This weekend, New Yorkers will have a rare opportunity to visit Tighthouse [3], the first certified Passive House [4] in NYC. The building was built in 1899 and was renovated in 2012 to operate with 90% less heating energy and 75% less energy overall thanks to its solar thermal and photovoltaic panels and rainwater collection system. If you’re interested to see how older buildings can be retrofitted to save money and energy, don’t miss your chance to step into this bright green NYC home [3]!
