Net-Zero Boulder Home for Two Attorneys Produces 140% of the Energy it Needs

This net-zero home designed for two Boulder, CO environmental attorneys by HMH Architecture & Interiors is built with sustainable materials throughout. The window design optimizes the amount of sunlight that comes in to keep the home cool in the summer and warm in the winter, while a 10kW rooftop solar array and hot water solar system produces 140 percent of the home’s energy every year. The excess power is sold back to Xcel Energy , which will eventually help pay off the initial investment. A beautiful showcase of cutting edge solar technology and green materials, the home is warm and livable – an essential component of this impressive design. + HMH Architecture & Interiors The article above was submitted to us by an Inhabitat reader.
