I began looking at net Zero Energy Houses in 2004 and started converting my lake house to net Zero in the fall of 2005. The last utility bill was paid in April of 2006. The next two years were spent continually improving the performance of the house. By 2008 there were four people living in the house full time and still producing as much on site energy as the house used.
Sustainable Future has helped many people move toward net Zero Energy. If you need help evaluating solar proposals or help reducing your energy bill I’m happy to make my services available.
