Net zero homes are custom made homes that produce as much energy as they consume, or even more, on an annual basis. It is an intelligent design that combines different renewable energy producers, as geothermal, solar, wind, hydro, etc. Using the adequate combination of theses, based on your house emplacement and needs, and other new technologies allows the house to be auto-suffisent.
