This article in the Washington Post talks about the idea of a house that can produce as much energy as it uses each year. The high end green building will be built in Washington, and equipped with the latest energy efficient techniques and technology. Scientists will monitor how the energy saving technology works in the house.
With a simulated family of 4 and all the makings of a sci-fi novel, this test will help demonstrate that net-zero energy usage can be achieved in a typical American home.
