Title: Wisdom Way Solar Village: Design, Construction, and Analysis of a Low Energy Community

Abstract

This report describes work conducted at the Wisdom Way Solar Village (WWSV), a community of 10 high performance duplexes (20 homes) in Greenfield, MA, constructed by Rural Development, Inc. (RDI). Building America's CARB team monitored temperatures and comfort in several homes during the winter of 2009-2010, and tracked utility bill information from 13 occupied homes. Because of efficient lights,appliances, and conscientious home occupants, the energy generated by the solar electric systems exceeded the electric energy used in most homes.
