A Zero Energy Home (ZEH) combines state-of-the-art, energy-efficient construction and appliances with commercially available renewable energy systems, such as solar water heating and solar electricity. The combination results in a home that produces its own energy?as much or more than it needs. Even though the home might be connected to a utility grid, it has net zero energy consumption from the utility provider. Zero Energy Homes optimize and include the following design features: * Climate-specific design * Passive solar heating and cooling * Energy-efficient construction * Energy-efficient appliances and lighting * Small solar electric system.
