Meritage Homes, one of the nation's biggest builders has committed to building Net Zero Homes as their new building model. In some communities this is mostly true. They'll build about 75% better than code and give the homeowner the option to solarize the home to net zero. But this is not a complaint. For a large production builder to have found a net zero sweet spot raises the bar pretty high. So high in fact that many builders will either have to follow suit or get out.
How about you? Think you're good enough to net zero or will you keep playing with your old deflated ball? Need some help? Contact Istockhouseplans for plans that can help you achieve Net Zero Energy Use.
