Energy Efficient

Using cutting edge technology to generate and Re_cover the maximum amount of Re_newable energy.

Following the energy reductions from the Re_home’s passive design systems, down-sized photovoltaic and mechanical systems can be used to power the home.

A high efficiency roof mounted photovoltaic system decreases the amount of panels needed to provide power for the home. An energy efficient mechanical system provides sensible conditioning for the home.
