Self-sustaining homes? zeroHouse makes this look good! zeroHouse generates its own electricity with that produce power and store it in an on board bank of batteries. Fully charged, zeroHouse can operate for up to one week with no sunlight at all.
zeroHouse collects its own water with a rain water collection plane that gathers and diverts water into an elevated 2700 gallon cistern. All plumbing fixtures are gravity fed eliminating the need for power consuming pumps. zeroHouse processes its own waste products with a digester unit located beneath the house. It converts waste into clean, dry compost that needs to be removed just twice a year.
zeroHouse is completely automatic. All functions are monitored by an array of sensors and regulated by a “house brain” that can be controlled by a laptop computer. And it is also fully customizable for personal usage patterns.
