A net zero energy building (nZEB) is one that creates the same amount of energy in a year that it requires to operate. I converted my home to a net zero energy building in 2006 and my office building in 2011. In fact, my office creates more energy than it uses and supplies the local power grid. In 2014 the Knoxville Utility Board sent me a check for almost $8,000.

One Important step in moving toward nZEB is reducing the amount of energy used.  This class will cover:

  1. Understanding your electric/gas bill
  2. How to find out where energy in being used or wasted
  3. Actions you can take reduce waste there by reducing your electric bill.
