ConSol activities

The purpose of the Zero Energy Residential Optimization Project (ZNE), which was funded by the California Energy Commission’s Electric Program Investment Charge (EPIC), was to demonstrate the functionality and practicality of an entire zero net energy residential community. ConSol orchestrated a team of builders, energy analysts and consultants, trade workers, and research institutions to solve ZNE related questions such as production home building construction costs and techniques, how much consumers are willing to pay for a ZNE home, and how much energy is actually being saved. ConSol coordinated the data installation and energy monitoring of 72 ZNE homes in Clovis, CA.

Why ConSol?

For decades, ConSol has been trusted by federal, state and local  government entities to develop and implement programs that support skills training,  job creation, clean energy and efficiency, code compliance, and market transformation in the building industry.

Our program management spans from technical training for builders and developers to quality assurance and quality control audits that ensure compliance with federal, state, and local regulations, and building codes. We have also played a pivotal role in orchestrating industry stakeholders to research, analyze, and enable the development of zero net energy (ZNE) and zero net carbon (ZNC) communities.
