The EcoHouse to be hosted at Glen Oaks Campus in Queens by Neighborhood Housing Services of Jamaica from September 19 through October 31 at PS/IS 266, 74-10 Commonwealth Boulevard, on the Glen Oaks Campus in Queens.  The EcoHouse is a free sustainability exhibit and environmental education center.

Community Environmental Center (CEC) designed and built the 46-foot-long EcoHouse in 2012 and has taken it to schools, parks and other public sites in all five boroughs, attracting more than 7,000 visitors in the tri-state area.  CEC is a Queens-based not-for-profit that recently won the EPA’s prestigious 2013 Environmental Quality Award.

The EcoHouse contains displays on all aspects of an environmentally more friendly home including everything from water use to lighting.

Beginning in January 2014, the EcoHouse will be hosted by the New York Hall of Science in Queens. Major supporters of the EcoHouse include NYSERDA (New York State Energy Research and Development Authority), the National Grid Foundation and A.S.K. Construction.
