Net Zero Energy Technology Is Changing The Housing Industry.

Home design is changing radically in the United States and in many other places around the world. Using clean energy technologies such as solar hotwater, solar pv and energy storage systems, designers are able to reduce the carbon footprint of many homes to zero.

Ultra insulation  and low energy consuming devices such as LED lighting and efficient appliances make the need to electricity considerably lower than the average home today. Builders are starting to offer many or all of these advantages to consumers as part of the initial cost for the home.
