LEAP’s main office is located in ecoREMOD 1: The Energy House – at 608 Ridge Street in Charlottesville. Our Northern Virginia office is housed at the Northern Virginia Regional Commission at 3040 Williams Dr #200 in Fairfax.

Congratulations! In 2013, ecoREMOD1 was awarded the US Green Building Council’s Leadership Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Platinum certification (the highest rating possible) for achievement in green homebuilding and design. Learn more about the LEED Platinum designation and ecoREMOD1

Designed and funded by the City of Charlottesville and the University of Virginia, inspired by LEAP, and drawing on many generous sponsors, we have transformed a formerly neglected home in a historic neighborhood into an innovative energy demonstration house. You can see for yourself how how energy and water improvements can be achieved in your home, no matter the age or condition of the property, by visiting LEAP at ecoREMOD1.


Email or call us (434.227.4666) to set up an appointment or to schedule a tour of ecoREMOD1 for your school, neighborhood, office, or civic group.

Or – just stop by during office hours Monday-Friday 9am-5pm. With a small staff, we cannot promise that the door will always be open or that we’ll be able to directly assist you. But we have educational displays throughout the house that enable self-guided tours.
