What is a Net Zero Home?
Essentially, it is a home that sustains itself.
That doesn’t mean that it is “off the grid.” Actually, it may use some energy from the local utility. But a Net Zero energy home generates the bulk of its own energy needs and makes enough extra energy to sell it back to the utility through “net metering,” offsetting the amount purchased.
Because of the energy-efficiency products used in a Net Zero energy home and because it requires so little energy from the utility companies, Net Zero energy homes also have the potential to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and reduce dependence on foreign oil. Our Net Zero homes are also built to the highest National Green Building Standards for even greater sustainability.
