Our Charlottesville Location
LEAP is headquartered in a 1920’s historic home at 608 Ridge Street called ecoREMOD. ecoREMOD is owned by the City of Charlottesville, which conducted a deep energy retrofit in 2010. With this project, the City took the lead in demonstrating how residential energy efficiency can be achieved in our community with the goal of taking a home in an historic district and to attain zero net energy use or somewhere very close to it, while still respecting the historic character of the home and the neighborhood. This project was inspired by the LEAP and its mission to facilitate energy efficiency and renewables for our residents.
ecoREMOD is accessible by the general public as an interactive, educational model home on energy efficiency to be used for contractor training, energy efficiency seminars, and field trips by our local schools (both public and private). The City works with LEAP, UVa, and Piedmont Virginia Community College (PVCC) faculty to develop interactive displays which educate and promote energy efficiency and renewables.
