As you may know, we have been working diligently in the area of zero energy design, which means that any energy we use in the building must somehow find another way of being produced, so we essentially use no energy. Really tough. We have been working first on passive design elements, such as thicker walls, better insulation, natural air flows, and natural day lighting. The work this group has done is truly amazing. Below is Laura Long, a member of the zero energy team and employee of NORR, explaining our natural day lighting plan.
