Designing and Modeling for Net Zero
Completed in 2015, P.S. 62 is NYC’s first net-zero energy school, designed under the requirements of the New York City School Construction Authority. The 66,000 square foot, 2-story school will serve 440 pre-kindergarten through 5th grade students on Staten Island, NY. The building harvests as much energy from renewable on-site sources as it uses on an annual basis. The primary renewable energy system is a roof mounted photovoltaic array.
