Apr 15 2010 - 1:00am

Peter Amerongen, Habitat Studio and Workshop Ltd.

Free presentation and discussion. Free refreshments at 6:30 pm

The sequence that he will present will apply as well to net zero ready and near zero projects. Read more about Approaching Net Zero Energy at the Lowest Possible Cost: A Step-by-Step Path
