Come visit solar house
I was very pleased to hear that Rutland is to become the solar hub of Vermont, and I would like all those in the Rutland area who are interested in solar energy to know that my net-zero (supplies all of its own energy needs) house in Brandon will be participating in the Northeast Sustainable Energy Associationís Green Building Open House this Saturday.
It is a good example of what can be done with solar technology and good building techniques. It won the 2011 Best of the Best Energy Star Home Award for a single-family house of its size. From Rutland, take Route 7 to Brandon center, turn onto West Seminary Street at the Town Hall. The house is on the right at the corner of North Seminary.
