Our motivation for starting this blog was to spread the word that zero-energy home building is not only possible but can be done by almost anyone planning a home construction project. The owners, designers, and builders of net-zero homes that we have talked to have also been eager to answer questions and tell others about this building standard. We haven’t been able to definitively determine how many net-zero houses have been built in the United States (CNN says it’s about 150), but we will be posting as many as we can find here. If you know of a net-zero home that you would like listed here, please contact us.
