World's First LEED Home - Net Zero - Episode 1
We took a trip to Sebastapol, California to tour the first LEED home in the world! The home was built from the ground up by Paul Rosen, Founder of North Bay Energy as well as a builder and sustainability consultant. Amazingly, the house is so energy efficient that the total annual utility cost is less that $10! Skeptical? Well we were too, so Paul invited us to tour the home while he explained all the different design features.
We like this home because its energy efficiency coupled with the fact that it produces most of its own electricity during peak energy hours means that its carbon footprint is very low. In addition, this home has some really cool design elements and a stunning landscape - stay tuned for these in the upcoming episodes of this series. If you are interested in more information about the home, contact us, and we will put you in touch with the owner.
This video is the first part of a series on this home. Check back soon for part 2.
