This report summarizes the work funded under the New Jersey Clean Energy Program Climate Choice Home (NJCC) R&D Project, which provided technical support to residential home builders as well as energy and environmental monitoring throughout design, construction, and post‐ occupancy to gain a better understanding of building construction techniques, occupant behavior influences on energy use, and the actual energy performance of the buildings. The NJCC R&D project was designed to support the efforts of the Residential New Construction program Climate Choice Homes Tier (Tier 3), which pushes the New Jersey market beyond the ENERGY STAR homes program and positions NJCEP in the lead on the path to zero net energy for residential buildings.
