O’Neil and O’Neil-Capps Homes
Aye Partners developed the O’Neil and O’Neil-Capps zero-energy homes, which were also the first LEED Gold certified homes in the U.S. Since 2006, the homes consistently produce as much energy as they consume each year, demonstrating that such homes can be built at market rate.
