The first multi-unit residence in the country to combine Passive House and nanogrid technology, Sol Lux Alpha is designed and built to be a “Carbon Neutral Living + Transportation” system, powered completely by the Solar on the roof, 12 Tesla Powerwalls and 2 Blue Planet Energy Towers in the garage. The building is also “grid tied”, meaning still connected to the power grid, and using that grid as a “back-up” for the building energy system. This means the units and building stay fully powered if and when the grid goes down due to natural disasters, blackouts, or “brownouts” of any kind, due to having solar + Energy Storage for each unit, and also for the building as a a whole. Energy-aware and resilient, Sol Lux Alpha responds to its micro-climate with a sensitivity and ingenuity never before seen in the country.
The building has a shared balcony with beautiful city views
