Net Zero Energy

Record #:
Since 2002, college teams have participated in the United States Department of Energy’s Solar Decathlon to design and build a home that can produce as much energy as it consumes. Among the 2011 winners was Appalachian State University’s entry, The Solar Homestead. The house was inspired by the frugal self-reliant spirit of early Blue Ridge Mountains settlers, constructed from sustainable materials and designed to function on renewable energy.
