Net-zero energy homes has been a dream objective for environmentalists for decades. Having a minimal impact on the environment and not worrying about monthly costs for energy, is an objective for many people who are in search for a new home. A company in Asheville, North Carolina has achieved that with the Renew Collection. The most important feature: they are affordable! The prefabricated homes will be able to generate their own energy. Both the photovoltaic and solar panels give power as well as water heating respectively. The prices of the home kits start under $100,000 and look very good. Browse through the models featured or perhaps watch the video to get a better idea about how the homes look and function.
