A combination of passive solar and lighting design will result in an aesthetically pleasing and energy efficient atmosphere in the home. The passive design of the home includes an array of windows in a three story turret and strategically placed windows throughout the home to provide every room in the home with natural daylight, even the closets. The unique energy efficient lighting design was created by professionals at 186 Lighting Design Group. Their design utilizes energy efficient lighting fixtures, bulbs, and lighting controls to create a comfortable atmosphere with minimal energy use.

In addition, a 6 KW Solar PV array is being installed to help offset the electrical load of the home.  For more information on this system, please visit our Solar Photovoltaics page.
