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 generation of your own renewable energy. This class will cover:
- Renewable Energy options with focus on Solar Electric
- Types of PV systems (solar electric)
- How much will they produce?
