The West Village at California’s UC Davis campus may soon become the nation’s largest planned community to achieve zero net energy consumption. The project, which organizers say will eventually house 3,000 students, 500 faculty and their families, as well as retail and commercial buildings, is 87% of the way to zero energy consumption, and expects to reach its goal by 2015. An added bonus for Mother Earth: The West Village produces zero carbon emissions.
The West Village at UC Davis is almost there.
