June 15, 2011 - PRLog -- The Energy House, a residential-style facility on the Delaware Technical Community College campus in Georgetown, Delaware, underwent LEED™ Certification in mid-June, achieving 103 points toward LEED™ Platinum designation, three more than the 100 required to receive Platinum certification.

Built by Emory Hill and Company based in New Castle, Delaware, the project features cutting-edge green technologies that can be used in residential and commercial facilities. From stormwater management and irrigation systems, solar electricity and efficient heating and cooling systems to lighting and flooring from renewable resources, future generations of students at DelTech will be learning in a state-of-the-art facility designed to function at peak performance while serving as a teaching laboratory.

The last phase of construction, the erection of a windmill at the site, will be completed in July. Final certification of the project is expected in late July or early August.  

There are 14 other LEED™ Certified projects in Delaware and this is only the second LEED™ Platinum facility in the State.
