Want to learn about Passive House retrofitting? Tim Delhey Eian will be showcasing a recent Passive House retrofit project in the TwinCites—the MinnePHit house in a presentation on Saturday, May 5, at 2pm in Bay A at the 4-H Building; MN State Fair.
Thinking about building or remodeling a home, or want to know more about energy efficient technology to reduce your carbon footprint as well as your heating and cooling bills? Tim Eian has focused his architectural skills on incorporating the latest technology in energy efficient new and remodeled homes, which use a tiny fraction of most houses.
This presentation at the North Hennepin Community College highlights the “MinnePHit House” project in South Minneapolis—a deep energy reduction project that turns a 1935 house into a Passive House home.
Time: 10 – 11 AM
Location: North Hennepin Community College CLA 133

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.
