Geos Net Zero Energy NeighborhoodArvada, Colorado, U.S.A.
- When completed, Geos will be the largest net zero energy, urban mixed-use development in the United States. It will cover 25.2 acres and feature 282 new dwelling units and 12,000 square-feet of retail space.
- Geos will generate 100 percent of its energy from geothermal wells and photovoltaic solar panels, both renewable energy sources.
- Optimal density and building arrangement provides energy savings by maximizing passive solar heat and natural day lighting, which lowers energy consumption by one-third.
- The Geos Neighborhood will feature 8.5 acres (34 percent of site) of parks and open space, including fruit tree co-ops, community gardens, play areas, percolation parks, town squares, event spaces, and mixed-use meadows.
