Can Green be affordable?

Building an energy efficient home that qualifies as part of an affordable home project may seem unrealistic......but that is exactly the project initiated by the Orange Community Housing and Land Trust.

Synergy  is very excited to be involved in this venture, and believes that the project will demonstrate that quality built energy efficient homes can also be affordable homes.

Synergy has been working with the Land Trust to develop plans and specifications to build three new homes in Carrboro that will qualify as Energy Star projects,  and will be evaluated by the Advanced Energy program.

The homes will be built on infill lots in Carrboro, feature sealed crawlspaces, advanced framing,  spray foam insulation, high efficiency hvac systems, Energy Star appliances, ventilation recovery systems, low VOC paint, fire sprinkler systems,  and much more.
