Come out to Oak Park to learn about the second verified Net Zero facility in the State of Illinois. The building owner and architect will take you on a tour of how the Park District of Oak Park was able to take a 100-year-old facility, add on for more functional programming, and meet some of the most rigorous environmental standards in the industry.
The Park District of Oak Park was awarded a $577,800 grant from the Illinois Clean Energy Community Foundation to achieve Passive House Certification and Source Zero Energy Certification for the Carroll Center expansion project.
This facility generates enough clean energy from the on-site solar array to not only cover the building’s energy needs, but also the entire park. With smart design and engineering tied to thorough construction administration we greatly exceeded our goals of Net Zero.
