Our award-winning house is a brand-new 1907 Victorian cottage, with original flooring and woodwork, windows with grills, garden of Minnesota native plants, and shows virtually no signs of its net zero capability. At the same time it produces more energy than it uses while offsetting 12 tons of carbon annually. It is certified LEED Platinum AND net-zero certified, and runs on 25 (summer) to 50 (winter) kilowatthours per day, with no sacrifice in comfort or convenience.
