Fifth Annual
Goal Net Zero Tour

  Saturday May 5th!

What exactly is Goal Net Zero?  Simply put, if your home, office, apartment complex or any other building you own consumes less energy than it produces annually, you are net zero.

It’s not just renewable energy systems that help you achieve a net zero building. Green building techniques are an integral part of the process.  Insulation values, daylighting, low air infiltration rates, reducing thermal bridging and a dedication to conserving the energy you’ve produced on a day-to-day basis are all examples that contribute to being net zero.
