Tufts students host Earth Day with groundbreaking ceremony for solar house

that the house will illustrate a convergence of social policy, engineering and sustainability. The design and construction of the house translates theory into real world practice. Moomaw is joined in the project by co-investigator, Chris Swan, Associate Professor of Civil Engineering at Tufts and BAC principal investigator Greg Demchak of Autodesk and a BAC faculty member. "Sustainable living is the future but it's not a very practical goal if the related costs are so enormous that they're not accessible to a wider community of average homebuyers," Moomaw says. "Building this house can't but help further our practical understanding of sustainability and renewable energy. What better education experience than to plan, design and build a house?"
