Hillside East is designed with no fossil fuel infrastructure. There are no gas lines or above ground fuel tanks. The entire neighborhood is designed to operate annually, all aspects of a modern home, without fossil fuels. All homes are 100% electric, featuring electricity from on-site solar generation, on-site battery backup and storage, and from Green Mountain Power’s 100% carbon free electric supply. What this means is that the daily and annual operation of your new home will not add carbon emissions to our atmosphere or life.
