Two new energy-efficient, eight-unit apartment buildings have opened at the Pequot Village Housing Development, which the Groton Housing Authority hopes will serve as a model for future renovations.
The "pilot project" called for tearing down two of the development's single-story, eight-unit buildings, which were energy inefficient and housed smaller units, to make way for two new two-story buildings. The new buildings feature roofs with solar shingles, geothermal heating and cooling, and larger apartments, according to the Groton Housing Authority.
