The IBEW Local 58 Zero Net Energy (ZNE) Center:

The IBEW commissioned and completed feasibility study will make it much easier for other businesses in the region to construct or remodel ZNE compliant buildings. The design and construction team spent countless engineering hours calculating the building’s energy production and consumption and then deploying an array of energy saving technologies to make the IBEW a true “zero net energy” facility. The ZNE Center is a working example of the many options available today to reduce energy consumption and increase energy savings.

Our job was to come in and install 67 cassette cooling and heating units and then we tied into the geo-thermal field and brought in the geo-thermal piping. The IBEW created a facility that is 100% energy efficient, something we can showcase to clients.
— Victor Calleja Director of Mechanical Commercial Division, Conti Corporation


Construction on the original building began in 1965 and was completed in 1966. Extensive building modifications to make the building ZNE compliant began in September 2016 and work on this 33,000-square foot facility was completed in the spring of 2017.
