Have you heard of the "Living Building Challenge"?

PV Squared is proud to have been the expert solar partner for three of these very special projects in Western Massachusetts; including the Hitchcock Center for the Environment!

The Team at the Hitchcock Center decided to create a building that was not only more restorative than destructive to our natural world, but also one that would further serve as an innovative teaching tool for future environmentalists. So, naturally PV Squared was thrilled to lend our expertise and collaborative spirit!
It was a win, win, win!
