On July 19, 2018 Ellis Passivhaus became Illinois’ First Passivhaus Institut Certified Building.

Wellness, sustainability, and maximum energy efficiency converge in this meticulous reconstruction.

In comparison to an average Chicago household living in the same sized house, Ellis Passivhaus reduces required total energy from 151,548 kWh per year to 11,500 kWh per year. This reduces C02 emissions from 212,908 pounds per year to 10,350 pounds per year.
