The Power of One | Thoughtful Balance

The best part of the day for me was the presentation by Tim McDonald.
Tim, co-founder of Onion Flats and professor at Temple University, spoke about the stakeholder meeting last summer at PHFA where stakeholders from the two largest cities in the state came together to ask PHFA to give extra points to have Passive House as part of the desired building criteria. Tim has been on sabbatical from Temple, and with his time he has dedicated his efforts to contacting every agency that allocates tax credits for affordable housing and is encouraging them to follow PHFA's lead. Emboldened and wanting to seize the momentum by PHFA, he has already contacted 35 of the 50 states. The map from his presentation shows the entire top of the country filled in! The possibility of the rapid spread of Passive House is becoming a reality because of one man's actions.

"We asked PHFA to initiate a project that would have all affordable housing in Pennsylvania designed and constructed to a net-zero energy capable standard by 2030, using Passive House as the tool," said Tim McDonald, President of Onion Flats and a former Associate Professor of Practice in Architecture at Temple University.
