Drake Landing provides a real-world example of how conventional heating fuel consumption for space heating can be nearly eliminated, reducing greenhouse gas emissions by more than 5.5 tons per house annually. This is made possible in the harsh 9,027 heating degree day climate by using solar heat collectors with seasonal heat storage, energy-efficient house design and construction, and a low temperature district heating network to distribute the heat to the homes.
