‘Super-Efficient’ Net Zero Homes Enter the Mainstream [video]

Net zero homes—structures that produce as much energy as they consume—have moved from concept to mainstream in just a decade, environmental journalist David Dodge reports in this video. “A net-zero home is more than just a place to hang your hat—it’s a super-efficient, solar-powered look into the future,” Dodge writes. “More passive solar energy means fewer complicated and expensive mechanical systems and a lower-cost house. Since that first house in 2007, interest in net-zero homes has grown rapidly.” (h/t to The Pembina Institute [1])
