Progress is pushing forward on the county’s Smart Grid and Smart House demonstration projects. John Arrowsmith, manager of the Department of Public Utilities, said the house will be located on Lavy Lane near the Los Alamos Public Schools’ administration building and east of the county’s switch gear building.
“This particular site was chosen because we thought there would be a lot of visitors and a lot of traffic and we didn’t think it was appropriate to have it in a residential area,” Arrowsmith said.
Anne Laurent, director of the county’s Capital Facilities and Projects Department said Mullen-Heller of Albuquerque will be the architect after submitting a bid of $32,000, the lowest of five.
“The house is supposed to be of a typical size and function for a Los Alamos home,” Laurent said.”We determined that size to be a three bedroom (building) around 2,000 to 2,500 square feet. It will have a garage component and that will be used for housing some of the bigger pieces of equipment as well as an orientation area for visitors.”
