Minnesota Net-Zero Construction
What is a Net-Zero Home?
A MN Net-Zero Home is an energy efficient home that has no heating, cooling, or electric bills. Our Minnesota Net-Zero homes are built with SIP panels and can completely eliminate energy bills. We use passive solar design, efficient heating and cooling, and energy star appliances, offset with a PV solar array. This will be the 2030 Energy code.
Science of Construction
The Minnesota climate is very extreme. Hot and humid summers and windy cold winters. To achieve a Net-Zero home in Minnesota takes a lot of planning and science. We use energy modeling to calculate every component of our houses. Once we know how much energy each system will use, we are able to calculate the properly sized solar array to offset all of the heating, cooling, and electric bills.

To achieve every component of your house has to be designed to work together from the beginning. This entire home system must…
Design and Energy Modeling
It all starts with an energy efficient design. Once we have the design we do energy modeling for all of the homes components, such as geography, envelope, windows and doors, hvac, hot water, ERV, lighting, and appliances.Read more
