Real Estate Experts announce Array Sustainable Living: North Carolina’s first 100 per cent net-zero energy neighbourhood

Peaceful. Healthy. Energy Efficient.

Chapel Hill, North Carolina - Jodi Bakst, Broker Owner of Real Estate Experts in Chapel Hill, North Carolina, is pleased to announce Array, North Carolina’s first 100 per cent net zero energy neighborhood. Bakst has been hard at work developing this one of a kind community with custom high performance homes.

Array, a 12-lot neighborhood located on 60 picturesque acres in Orange County, is located off Orange Grove Road just minutes West of downtown Carrboro and Chapel Hill.

Bakst said: “We are focused on developing a net zero energy community because residential and commercial buildings consume 40 per cent of our nation’s energy and 25 per cent of our fresh water. We strongly believe that building sustainably is no longer just a good idea, it is a moral imperative.”

“Array’s Net zero energy homes will produce as much energy as they consume as well as meet aggressive targets for water conservation and indoor air quality. Not only are these homes energy efficient with cost-savings, they are healthy too,” said Bakst.

Array will have beautiful, custom-designed, high performance homes created and built by some of the Triangle area’s best and most experienced green architects and builders. Array will embrace all the principles of sustainable design, development, and construction from passive-house energy efficiency to PV solar arrays specifically sized for each energy-efficient home. Each house will also be third party certified based on the National Green Building Standards.

Bakst built an excellent team to bring this dream to life. “I could not have done this without them,” said Bakst.

“I give many thanks to Cor Rademaker, my husband and sustainable design expert; Kevin Murphy, owner of NewPhire Building; Arielle Schechter, architect; Jay Fulkerson, architect, and Jamie Hager, a building science expert, with Southern Energy Management. Their expertise has been invaluable throughout the process.”

Real Estate Experts is building a list of interested buyers for the lots. Bakst said, “We are working on getting the permit for the road and once that comes through, we will be ready to move full steam ahead.”
