Energy efficiency has always been a cornerstone of Church Community Housing. From building the first solar house in Newport to the Net Zero homes currently under construction, CCHC has always looked for new ways to reduce utility costs, fossil fuel consumption, and our carbon footprint. Energy efficiency always makes sense, and all the more so when talking about housing for low and moderate income families working to improve their financial situation.
