Zero Net Energy Homes at Sage Green


Green One Construction Services just completed phase one in Sage Green, an ultra energy efficient community in Beaverton, Oregon.  The entire project will have a total of 18 homes, and the first five are now on the market with pricing between $257,900 and $259,000.  I guess you can say it's a small price to pay for the desirable, but still rare, benefit of zero net energy living. 

Sage Green homes minimize demand for energy in part through the use of a styrofoam and plywood wall assembly -- something Ben Walsh of Green One calls ply-on-foam.  In addition, efficient features include triple-glazed windows, CFL lighting, and high efficiency mechanical systems. 

When combined with on-site solar power, over the course of a year, each home will generate enough energy to power a family of four with a comfortable modern lifestyle.  And an Energy Performance Score of 0 validates the same. 

These homes, designed by Tara Doherty, are built with low- and no-VOC paints, adhesives, and finishes, as well as locally-sourced and recycled content materials.  You can find the community at 4900 SW 149th Avenue in Beaverton, Oregon, 97007.
