A community building in Oregon and an office building in California are the first two projects to earn net-zero status under the International Living Building Institute’s Net Zero Energy Certification program.

The Pringle Creek community center is a renovated 80-year-old building within a 32-acre mixed-use redevelopment in Salem, Ore. The Ideas Z2 Facility is a renovated U.S. Bank building constructed in the 1960s. Both were designed to meet all of their electricity needs with solar power arrays.
