Creating Energy Efficient Main Streets Guide

The Creating Energy Efficient Main Streets Guide, created by the Lakota Group and Marks, Thomas Architects for Main Street Iowa and use by Main Street Iowa communities, addresses energy efficient design techniques for historic commercial building rehabilitation.

The aim of the guide is to apply the latest energy efficiency technologies while preserving and maintaining the important historic features and characteristics of the buildings. The guide focuses on basic techniques, such as weatherization, insulation options and foundation improvements, which, with proper application, should yield savings on energy costs for business and building owners and reduce Main Street’s dependence on non-renewable energy sources.
