Campbell Crossing Constructs First Zero-Energy Homes on a Military Installation

 

Home energy and cost savings to help establish model for future zero-energy projects across the home building industry

Actus Lend LeaseFort Campbell, KY – Campbell Crossing, the public-private partnership between Actus Lend Lease (Actus) and the U.S. Army, today announced the completion of the first two zero-energy homes on a military installation.

A design approach focused on energy efficiency and solar thermal energy production will result in a home that can function on 54 percent less energy than a home of comparable size constructed using today’s building standards. The energy savings is equivalent to diverting 16 tons of carbon dioxide from being released into the environment each year, which equals the same amount of greenhouse gases eliminated by recycling 5.4 tons of waste annually. The remaining energy needs for the home will be supplied by roof mounted photovoltaic solar panels, resulting in a home that produces as much energy as it consumes on a yearly basis.
