Waste, waste, waste. We’ve turned out to be great at it. But what if it could be a different way? A way where we could spend less money, have more, and give back to our Mother Earth while doing it
Our future home could make electric bills a thing of the past, and even help you earn money in the process. Plus-energy homes are popping up around the world, generating more energy than they use, and can even be set up to sell excess energy back to the grid. Beautiful, energy efficient, and increasingly affordable, these dwellings are proving the viability of renewable energy over fossil fuel sources. We’ve rounded up five plus-energy homes that can produce more energy than they need, with some so powerful that they can even light up the house next door.
