First commercial building to achieve Net Zero Electric

Branchburg, NJ, July 12,2007- This day marks the first time a commercial facility in the US has produced enough electrical energy from renewable energy source to meet it's entire demand for a full year. Ferreira Construction.

Ferreira Construction headquarters in Branchburg NJ, utilizes renewable energy to produce all the electricity needed for their 42,000 sq ft building, a combination of office and shop space.


The 31 Tannery project exceeded expectations by not only producing all the electric energy needed for this facility but generated a surplus . This "green" energy surplus was then made available for use by other businesses to reduce their carbon footprint and use of fossil fuels. The project team invented a new proprietary patent pending energy efficiency and building monitoring system that was critical to their success and can also be used to help other companies significantly reduce their energy consumption.

The US Dpt. of Energy has set a goal that renewable energy building would be commercially viable by 2025, and the 31 Tannery project and Ferreira Construction has made a major step forward to achieving that goal. A key element of this amazing project is a pay back period of just 5 to 7 years. The project team is committed to sharing their design with the US DOE and the state of NJ to aid other companies in utilizing standard building designs, renewable energy, high efficiency systems, and their new patent pending monitoring system to spread this energy efficiency strategy across the US.

Joseph Grabowski and Ed Brzezowski, the team responsible for the technology implemented, look forward to sharing this success and welcome all inquiries.
