While many homeowners love the idea of a home that produces all the energy that it needs, most people assume that a zero-energy home is prohibitively expensive. However, changes in technology effectiveness and costs make zero energy homes much more financially accessible than most people realize. This session will present the results of in-depth cost-optimization research for zero energy and zero energy ready approaches to show what is possible for low-cost construction. Further, we'll explore what cost thresholds matter to consumers and how these homes compare to those thresholds.
