This fall we made four energy efficiency upgrades to the co-op building made possible by Green Gap Funding LLC. Founded in 2012, Green Gap Funding is made up of local investors interested in accelerating Keene’s progress towards a greener future. They raise funds through equity investment and loan it to suitable development projects. Our Co-op is their very first project!
Building upgrades summary:
- We added 2″ rigid foam under the slab, improving insulation from R0 to R10
- We improved the wall insulation from R20 to R31
- We improved our roof insulation by adding additional foam changing the insulation from R20 to R40
- We upgraded our double pane windows to triple pane which increased our insulation from R2.22 to R4.17
