RenewableEnergyAccess.com has a podcast on cohousing and green building featuring Nubanusit Neighborhood and Farm, a cohousing community in New Hampshire.

The 18 minute audio program focuses on the ecological features of the community including energy efficiency and design to minimize driving. The cohousing units received a LEED Platinum rating, the highest rating awarded by LEED.


The Nubanusit Neighborhood and Farm is a new 29-unit co-housing development being built in Peterborough, NH. The community features state-of-the-art, energy-efficient homes; a working organic farm; seven wood pellet boilers for electricity and hot water; and “roughed in” plans for photovoltaics and solar hot water systems. Stephen Lacey visited the site and brought back this story.

Last month we ran a piece from the same site on how renewable energy and cohousing could reduce home energy costs.
