Please join us next Tuesday for an Introduction to Passive House with Jim Burton, President of Passive House Northwest. Passive House (passivhaus) is the world’s most rigorous approach to energy efficient design and construction, achieving a 75%-90% greater efficiency than standard built-to-code buildings in the US. With the addition of a relatively small amount of site-produced energy (PV, wind or other), Certified Passive House buildings can achieve Net Zero Energy today.

We will be reading Solar by Ian McEwan.

Here's a brief description of the novel:

"When Nobel prize-winning physicist Michael Beard's personal and professional lives begin to intersect in unexpected ways, an opportunity presents itself in the guise of an invitation to travel to New Mexico. Here is a chance for him to extricate himself from his marital problems, reinvigorate his career, and very possibly save the world from environmental disaster."
