"Race to Zero"
“Race to Zero”

Want a $0.00 energy bill? It is possible! The Penn College community can learn how at Thursday’s “Race to Zero” presentation, set for 3:30 p.m. in the Klump Academic Center Auditorium. Everyone will learn about current standards that can be used to design houses that produce as much energy as they use. All students are invited to be part of the U.S. Department of Energy Student Design Competition team, putting their combined skills – architecture; surveying; construction management; estimating; interior design; landscaping; and mechanical, electrical and plumbing systems – toward a Habitat for Humanity home to be built in the Brodart neighborhood of Williamsport in the summer of 2015. Their design will be submitted in the DOE contest, intended to inspire and develop the next generation of building science professionals.
