SUWANEE, Ga. — Mitsubishi Electric US Cooling & Heating Division announced it has renewed its sponsorship with Passive House Alliance — U.S. (PHA-US), a nonprofit organization established to support the passive house building standard.

Mitsubishi Electric first joined PHA-US as a green-level sponsor in 2012 before becoming a silver-level sponsor in 2013.

“Since first introducing ductless technology to the U.S. market more than 30 years ago, Mitsubishi Electric has consistently been at the forefront of sustainable building trends,” said Mark Kuntz, vice president of marketing and engineered solutions. “Mitsubishi Electric products are energy efficient and ideal for houses designed to attain passive house certification. Sponsoring PHA-US and its sustainable initiatives is a natural fit for us.”

As part of its renewed sponsorship, Mitsubishi Electric will continue to support local training sessions, connect building professionals and consumers with energy-efficient products, promote and consult on passive house product development, and support efforts to lobby government agencies and revise building codes. These ventures will foster the overarching goal of the association to expand the community of passive house designers and practitioners.
