Zero Net Energy: A California Case Study
The Liberty Project, a 341-acre master planned community proposed for West Sacramento, California, was awarded the Best on the Boards Gold Nugget Award at the 2017 Pacific Coast Builders Conference. Liberty will be the first zero net energy (ZNE) community in the PG&E service area, and one of the largest ZNE communities in California.
Frontier Energy’s Davis office worked with Liberty’s planner, the Templeton Planning Group, and developer, Pacific Teal Development, to complete a feasibility study to determine if community-scale zero net energy was feasible by using rooftop solar. Staff then created design guidelines to reduce the Liberty project’s energy demands and maximize onsite energy generation from renewable sources.
