The Habitat for Humanity of Metro Denver Zero Energy Demonstration Home:
Proof that a well-designed home can produce as much energy as it consumes — and more!
The Habitat for Humanity of Metro Denver and NREL worked closely together to design and build this home, which surpassed zero energy requirements by producing 24% more energy than it consumed over a 12-month period. The design includes super-insulation, active and passive solar elements, ENERGY STAR® appliances, and a mechanical ventilation system.
