The houses are topped with a photovoltaic solar array, which may look a bit like a helicopter landing pad, but serves to reap and transfer solar electricity to the home’s battery bank. This solar system can store enough energy for the home to run an entire week without sunshine. The zeroHouse also collects rainwater, processes all of the occupants’ organic waste for composting, and is completely automated through a resident’s own laptop computer.
Each zeroHouse module has a fully functioning kitchen, comfortable living room, full bathroom and two bedrooms. Additionally, the home features four covered decks for shaded outdoor enjoyment, consisting of two ground-floor porches and two elevated decks on each of the four sides of the house. VERY cool.
Every aspect of the zeroHouse demonstrates incredibly thoughtful, durable and eco-friendly design, from the LED lighting to the zone-controlled heating & cooling system. Not to mention the uber high-tech energy efficient windows. Bravo, pioneers.
