  1. Does anyone know how energy efficient these buildings are designed to be? There’s a low/ affordable income housing project being built across from Fresh Pond built to Passive House standards- saving 65% on energy use with just 2% increase in overall cost. Seems Watertown should be setting the pace & saving taxpayer $$ & our kids’ future

    • The new schools are going to be built to meet the LEED Gold standard, and they are looking to see if they can be net zero energy use buildings. It will require a lot of solar panels to do so, with panel not just on the roof but on other parts of the property including in the parking lot on raised racks.
