Zero Net Energy Living in the Hudson Valley

Zero Net Energy Neighborhood in New Paltz, New York

The Preserve at Mountain Vista is only minutes to the village of New Paltz and was built by Greenhill Contracting. These nine Zero Net Energy Homes are designed to save money and the environment.

All of the homes have been designed and built to the highest energy efficiency and green building standards. Most notably, these standards include: NYS Energy Star Certified Homes, EPA Indoor airPLUS, US DOE Zero Energy Ready Homes, and the USGBC LEED for Homes Silver Level certification. The LEED program consists of a set of green building strategies to increase energy efficiency and air quality while minimizing the impact of new home construction.

Thirty acres surrounding The Preserve have been designated as a conservation easement and nature preserve. And, most importantly, each home will be capable of producing more energy each year than it consumes. Because of this, homeowners will have no heat or electric bills! These homes raise the standard for comfort and energy efficiency.
