Welcome to the SAN DIEGO Chapter of the Passive House Alliance!

PHA San Diego is a chapter of the Passive House Alliance United States, a national member organization whose mission is to bring awareness to the extraordinary benefits of passive building, and make it “the way” of building smarter in the United States. As Passive House Institute US (PHIUS) is in its seventh year of training building professionals on the utilization of the Passive House Standard, a community of consultants continues to grow in North America. Passive Building utilizes the Passive House Standard, the worldʼs highest energy efficiency standard, offering 90% reductions in heating and cooling costs and 80% overall reductions in primary energy costs, while offering the optimum in thermal comfort and healthy indoor air quality. The effort is in response to the climate change crises, sighting how the building sectorʼs use of fossil fuels is the largest contributor to global green house gas emissions.

Members consist of architects, engineers, building scientists, builders, material manufacturers, policy makers, code writers and a variety of concerned professionals and citizens wanting to change the current building paradigm to a better way to build. The goal is to ensure the success of future generations and to shift consumers from the use of polluting fossil fuels to the benefits of clean, renewable energy promised from ushering in the solar age. 

Members and guests meet bi-monthly from 6:30-8:30pm to discuss current topics in building science; policy; advocacy and current projects and victories. This is followed by a monthly presentation from industry leaders on a range of relevant topics to the high performance and passive building community. The chapter also participates in local outreach and advocacy efforts and networking with other like minded organizations.
