General Energy Use, Strategies and Systems

Energy Use:

This home is 100% electric and uses no fossil fuels. A dual axis pole mounted solar PV array maximizes the energy generation by following the sunlight. An electric car charging station is installed too.

Renewables and Energy Balance

Renewable Energy Sources:
Renewable energy is generated within the building footprint (e.g. solar PV on the roof), Renewable energy is generated on-site but not on the building (e.g. wind turbine in the parking lot)
Renewable Energy System Description & Details
REM/Rate modeling shows the residential electric consumption will be more than provided for by the PV array. A geothermal system provides heating, cooling and much of the hot water heating.
