Casa Esperanza, Roxbury MAServices: Design and Construction
Nuestro Hogar is an affordable housing building in Roxbury, developed by Casa Esperanza in its initiative to help members of the Latino community overcome issues of substance abuse. The program provides in-house bilingual services for job training, counseling and rehabilitation. This community-oriented housing project received funding from the Massachusetts Clean Energy Center for a 7.5 kW PV system, completed in 2011, which provides nearly 10 MWh of electricity to Nuestro Hogar annually. Zapotec Energy provided design and construction services for Casa Esperanza, and continues to monitor the performance of the system at Nuestro Hogar through PowerDash.
