Net-Zero Energy

Zero Net Energy Buildings are one of Optima’s passions.  We designed the first ZNE Building in the Carolinas: Sandy Grove Middle School.

Since then, we have designed over a dozen ZNE projects: 3 of which have been verified, with 6 of them thru construction and waiting on their first year of production so that they can be truly labeled “Zero Net Energy” Buildings, and 4 currently in design or construction phase.  There is no engineering firm in the Southeast with more experience than Optima.
