DANBURY, Conn. -- Henry Abbott Technical High School in Danbury will open the state's seventh "E-House" at 9:45 a.m. Wednesday, Dec. 17.

Considered the nation’s first “green” construction learning laboratories for high school students, the E-House initiative provides a clean energy and energy efficiency curriculum and training for Connecticut’s Technical High School’s architectural, carpentry, electrical and plumbing students and faculty.

The houses are designed and built by students and faculty. Each E-House incorporates solar photovoltaic and solar thermal systems, weatherization and energy efficiency labs in the design of the project.

The E-House gives students the opportunity to conduct hands-on field work in these various labs, preparing them for a “green” career after graduation.
