As the cost of energy-efficient equipment falls and buyers seek to save on their electricity bills, we’ll likely be seeing more net-zero homes. A home with the “net-zero” name tag means it produces more electricity than it uses, commonly thanks to solar panels, wind turbines, energy-efficient windows and appliances, water recycle systems, and more. The interest in net-zero homes is skyrocketing, and it’s no surprise — the annual costs of a net-zero home are extremely low, especially compared to a full-sized home. Check out this infographic from Tech Page One via Inhabitat to see for yourself what the net-zero homes of the future will look like!
