Matt’s own 112-year-old historic net zero energy home is believed to be the oldest single family residence to be seeking Living Buildings Challenge recognition.  It was selected as one of USA Today’s “Best Green Homes of 2010” and The Atlantic called it “sustainable perfection.” A frequent source for journalists on the topic of net zero energy, Matt has been called a “proven zero energy master”, the “#1 All-Electric Innovator” and one of “Greater Detroit’s most progressive personalities.” He was honored as a 2012 Michigan Green Leader by the Detroit Free Press.  Matt is an adviser to the University of Michigan BLUElab team targeting Living Building Certification for his landmark home. He is also an adviser to the Lawrence Tech 2015 Solar Decathlon Team.
