A new apartment building in Gilford is the first in the state to be certified as a “passive house.”
It uses airtight construction and energy efficient insulation that aims to sharply lower residents’ bills.
The building is the third phase of an affordable senior housing development called Gilford Village Knolls.
It includes 24 one-bedroom apartments, with a small rooftop solar array to cut residents' energy costs through net metering.
The nonprofit Lakes Region Community Developers built the multi-million dollar complex with state funding and tax credits.
