Near-Zero-Energy Home
Local builders take an inside look at the Mid-Atlantic region's first near-zero-energy production home.

"Combining state-of-the-art energy-efficient features with solar thermal and photovoltaic technologies, the home is expected to perform about 50% better than a standard code-compliant home of similar size.

The 2,900-square-foot, two-story colonial with a full basement and attached garage is typical of many new homes built in the Baltimore-Washington, D.C. area, and its only distinguishing features on the exterior are an array of photovoltaic panels and two solar thermal panels on the roof."   Link: Green Building : Mid-Atlantic PowerHouse Showcases Energy Efficiency : HGTVPro.com
