Energy Efficient Homes
This project represents one of five national pilot communities announced by President Bill Clinton in May 1998 through the Building America program and the federal government’s Partnership in Advancing Technology in Housing (PATH). The goal of this ambitious project was to use advanced technologies to produce energy efficient, environmentally sensitive, affordable, and adaptable residences. Innovative building strategies included the use of photovoltaics, steel-framed components and upgraded insulation.
A cooperative effort between the Federal government and private industry, this 186-unit detached single-family home community consists of two-story, three and four-bedroom residences with attached two-car garages, priced from $160,000. A .06-acre public park is located near the entry of the community with a tot-lot and Child Care Center and is within walking distance to the Sylmar/San Fernando Metrolink Station.
