Zero-Energy Homes: A New Direction in Energy-Efficient Home Building

A zero-energy home — a home that produces as much energy as it consumes — slashes or eliminates utility bills, and even creates the potential for the home to make money by selling energy to a utility. In this excerpt from the book “Toward a Zero Energy Home,” authors David Johnston and Scott Gibson explain why green building shouldn’t be just about expensive photovoltaic panels and wind turbines, but should also focus on reducing the total amount of energy a home needs. Learn about the basics of zero-energy, near-zero-energy, off-the-grid and carbon-neutral homes, and how these exciting abodes are redefining what it means to build green.
