This video shows how Zero Energy Homes can have more benefits and cost less to own than a similar home built to code:
ZeroHomes.org is a non-profit educational site designed to help builders, designers, and home buyers take meaningful steps towards radically reducing carbon emissions and energy bills by building Zero Net Energy Homes and Near Zero Energy Homes. We envision the day when Positive Energy Homes, which produce more energy than they consume, power electric vehicles, as well as homes, so that we can live well with less expense and without fear of energy price spikes, while greatly reducing our carbon emissions. This vision takes on new urgency in light of “Global Warming’s Terrifying New Math!” by Bill McKibben and in light of the World Bank’s recent report “Turn Down the Heat: Why a 4°C Warmer World Must be Avoided”.
