We're restoring our 110-year-old Folk Victorian home and have made it ultra energy efficient by using geothermal heating and cooling, motion sensor lights, an energy monitor, tight insulation and sealing, and energy star appliances.
Now we're nearly ready to add solar panels. The home will then produce more energy than we consume.
This project will make history by being the oldest home in America to achieve net-zero energy. We hope to inspire others to create a Mission Zero for every one of the 130 million existing homes in the U.S.
Restoring old homes is not just about preserving the past, it's about protecting our future.
