The Sun Valley neighborhood in Denver is the city’s lowest-income area. With the nonprofit Sun Valley EcoDistrict Trust (SVED) as master developer, the area will become a zero energy district featuring redeveloped public housing for its 1,500 residents. SVED plans to develop the district energy system over a 10-year period.
Key Energy Opportunities
- Planning to build ultra-efficient public and low-income housing that can achieve zero energy
- Through a request for qualifications, seeking district utility partners that will contribute to SVED’s goals for Sun Valley.
