This is the first Eco Flats creation of Solares owners Tom and Christine. They bought this building and did a Deep Energy Retrofit, full-gut renovation. The result is a rental building that’s home to three all-electric dwellings.
Everything in the building is run on electricity; the gas hookup was completely removed. Because of the energy efficiency of the design and equipment, the electricity bills are extremely low, even though they account for everything: heating, cooling, hot water, cooking, lighting, plug loads, delivery, regulatory charges and taxes.
Housing three apartment units, and boasting extreme energy efficiency, this project is a showcase of how beautiful and efficient rental apartments can be.
