Basalt Vista Housing Partnership

Categories: Battery Storage

The Basalt Vista Housing Partnership is a collaboration between Habitat for Humanity Roaring Fork, Holy Cross Energy (HCE – the local cooperative utility), the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) and Sunsense with the goal of providing affordable housing to teachers and other workforce families within a framework of solar electric power generation and battery storage.

In the first four homes, HCE will conduct a study hoping to prove how adjusting energy levels provided by solar arrays and battery storage, designed and built by Sunsense, can be more cost-effective than modifying energy production at a centralized power plant.

The build out will include twelve (12) structures and twenty-seven (27) units, all net zero energy consumers.
