This home is Zero Carbon emission. Using Photovoltaic solar panels, this home generates eight Kilowatts of power. Enough power for everything in the house, including heating, cooking, and even two electric cars.  Its modern design includes Southern facing windows to capture passive energy while a skylight over a glass encased three-story staircase lets sunlight reach from rooftop to basement. The rear elevation includes a rain screen and concrete panels used as siding
