project:HOMES addresses affordable housing from an energy-conserving standpoint. A home that conserves more energy is not only more comfortable but it also reduces the resident's carbon footprint and annual energy costs. A home that is made more energy-efficient is also made more affordable. project:HOMES is the lead Weatherization agency in the region, allowing us to make energy improvements to homes and apartments in 7 cities and 18 counties in Virginia. In addition to our owner-occupied energy improvements, project:HOMES prioritizes energy efficiency in the homes we build. In 2018 we built our first net-zero home and we are currently building 7 more.
