The ultimate goal of a green home design is to create zero-energy home: a house that produces 100%, or more energy than it uses, and is thus, completely independent of exterior sources of energy, such as grid electricity, oil or natural gas.
Creation of such buildings is practical and economical, using today’s technology and widely available green building materials. But, doing this right does require thorough planning and close integration of various energy conservation with renewable energy generation systems to supply the house with electricity, heat and hot water.
Additionally, a rain water collection system for grass irrigation and other household water needs is also preferable option to make a zero-energy home ever more greener.
Read our blog on some of the green building ideas and practices that we have included in our Solar Home Design project, which is open to participation by anyone who is interested and can submit some efficient green building ideas to make this project more efficient and less expensive.
