Case Study: Southeast Volusia Habitat for Humanity

Case Study: Southeast Volusia Habitat for Humanity

In August 2013, Southeast Volusia County Habitat for Humanity (Volusia Habitat) completed its first U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Zero Energy Ready Home in Edgewater, on the Atlantic coast of central Florida. This 1,250- ft2, 3-bedroom, 2-bath home achieved a Home Energy Rating System (HERS) score of 49. That is 70 points better than typical existing homes, which have an average HERS score of 120 or higher. And it means substantially lower utility bills for the Habitat affiliate’s homeowners.
