PassivhausMAINE is committed to decreasing carbon emissions, decreasing dependency on fossil fuels and decreasing costs for winter heating across the economic strata in Maine.
Passive House represents the ultimate answer to energy conservation in buildings by eliminating up to 90% of required energy use.
Maine has an economic and environmental climate ideally suited to showcase the strengths of this building strategy characterized by drastically reduced heating costs through the use of super insulation, airtight construction and mechanized ventilation
