Passive House BKLYN

Energy Revolution in a Brooklyn Townhome

Rain Barrel Water Collection

We are installing a rain barrel for to capture some of the roof runoff for use in the future garden.  The rain barrel that the client has selected is the “Abe” model by AquaBarrel. http://www.aquabarrel.com/product_rain_barrel_complete_80gal.php.  While this isn’t part of the Passive House Standards, Passive House ideologically encourages additional sustainable measures in building practice.
