A Truly Green Net-Zero Energy Home

The Moore House is a truly green home high in the Rocky Mountains of Colorado that creates more energy than it uses. Architect Thomas Doerr shows how passive solar design, super-insulation, photovoltaics (PV) and solar thermal were used to create this southwestern style, net-zero energy house. The US Department of Energy’s Energy Star program says a typical house scores 100 on its HERS (Home Energy Rating System). The lower a house scores, the better. The green building strategies used for the Moore House earned it a HERS score of -3; one of a few houses to ever score this well. Learn more at www.BuildSustainably.com *
