This just in: The Passive House in the Woods in Hudson Wisconsin officially clocked a net-energy positive meter reading in 2011.
What does that mean?
In short, it made more energy than it consumed. While we predicted this with our energy models, we found and learned through monitoring that some equipment and appliances use more energy than assumed. On the flip side, user behavior plays a major role as well and can effectively lower energy consumption over the predicted model.
Starting the journey towards energy neutrality and beyond with a Passive House works really well, as the building is designed to provide a comfortable environment with very little energy input. The addition of carefully sized renewable sources, such as photovoltaic and solar thermal can then balance the remaining energy flow, or reverse it.

Thanks for those of you who came out yesterday to see the MinnePHit House in South Minneapolis. We literally had a full house and shared many great conversations after the initial presentation. Thanks for your interest. I suppose it did help that the StarTribune published an article about the project the same morning.
We thank those who came out to the Passive House in the Woods last night for the annual Passive House Days. It was a full house and we managed to raise the temperature inside by at least 5 degrees ;). Thanks for celebrating this first year of occupancy with us, the owner, Christine Frisk of InUnison Interior Design, and Josh Crenshaw of Morr Construction. We greatly enjoyed having you and look forward to Sunday’s public tour at 10.45 AM. There are still a few free tickets available. You can find them here: http://phitw8phdsun.eventbrite.com/
