Story

Designed as an Affordable, Buildable and Certifiable (ABC) Green Home, this Craftsman-style, 1,695-square foot, three bedroom, three bath home is a Net-Zero energy-consumption model home, which provides a blueprint for builders on how to mass produce environmentally-friendly houses that generate as much energy as they consume. Built by Southern California Edison and Green Home Builder magazine, this cutting-edge, high-tech home is equipped with the latest energy and water efficiencies and onsite/offsite monitoring systems and includes solar panels, a cool roof, and a system that recycles the water supply within the house.
