Please click on the following link to read more about MUM Sustainable Living Center to be ''net-zero energy building''.

The article features the Sustainable Living Center at Maharishi University of Management—which is scheduled to open with a celebration and press conference April 20. The Center will have the distinction of being one of the few ''net-zero'' energy buildings in the country, meaning that the building produces as much or more energy than it uses.

''We will be net-zero for energy, including for electricity and for heating and cooling,'' said sustainable living faculty member Lonnie Gamble. ''Many net-zero buildings are net-zero just for electricity.''

The building already incorporates many energy-saving 'green' features. Initially it will be connected to the grid, using electricity as needed during extreme weather conditions; it is designed to eventually be completely off the grid, including for water usage and waste treatment, as more funds become available.

The opening will coincide with the EcoFairfield weekend being organized by students, and also with Earth Day on April 22.
