Quest Energy and the Las Vegas Cyclery

The Las Vegas Cyclery is completing their new facility, a LEED Platinum project operating at Net Zero, essentially producing on site as much energy as the facility consumes. Traditional buildings consume 40% of the total fossil fuel energy in the US and are significant contributors of greenhouse gases. The zero net energy consumption principle is viewed as a means to reduce carbon emissions and reduce dependence on fossil fuels. Zero energy buildings remain very rare.
