SMUD House of the Future Demonstration

La Valentina North Affordable Townhomes
Near zero energy building report
SMUD?s Home of the Future Demonstration Program
Prepared by Mike Keesee, Project Manager Energy Research and Development
Sacramento Municipal Utility District September, 2012
Revised by TRC Energy Services to include post construction performance monitoring
November, 2014

In 2009, SMUD partnered with owner/developer Domus Development LLC on the La
Valentina North, an 18-unit affordable townhouse, Home of the Future (HOF) project. La
Valentina was a research and demonstration project that combined advanced construction
techniques with high efficiency building features and equipment and a virtual net metered
solar photovoltaic (PV) system. Project goals included:
1. Operate as closely as possible to a zero net use of energy, including cutting annual
source energy use by 80% and achieving zero net peak demand during SMUD?s 4 to 7
p.m. summertime peak period.
2. Incorporate advanced framing techniques and HVAC design.

As part of La Valentina?s design, project team members met with Domus and its design
team to review design strategies and to develop a list of efficiency features to be included
to achieve La Valentina?s energy performance goals. The National Renewable Energy
Laboratory (NREL) provided critical technical assistance in developing the project?s energy
efficiency measures.
The project team conducted energy analysis using EnergyPro software, which models
energy use for Title 24-regulated loads. The analysis showed La Valentina units on
average would use 54.4% less TDV energy than a project built to the California 2008 Title-
24 Standards, including 63% less electricity and 48% less natural gas (
