ZNE Design Analysis of the Creekside Affordable Housing Project

The Creekside project is a 90-unit workforce and special needs housing project with the goal of being the first zero net energy (ZNE) affordable multifamily project in the City of Davis, California. The design team evaluated several design options for optimization of building performance while aiming to keep first costs to a minimum, critical for this affordable housing project. The incremental cost of each efficiency measure along with the cost savings from the estimated reduction in solar PV capacity resulting from each measure’s energy savings were used to evaluate cost effectiveness.

The resident population will include extremely low-income (25% Area Median Income), very low-income, and lower income households.  Forty percent of the units will be prioritized for individuals who are disabled and/or currently homeless. The HUD 811 Project Rental Assistance (PRA) Program will provide rent subsidies to 22 of the extremely low-income units.
