Should your Next Home be Net Zero Energy?

Posted on by Beth

An article written by Beth Shady, President and Director of Marketing for SDPM appears in this month’s PhC News and Plumbing Engineer.  Beth interviewed Net Zero Energy expert David Knight of NZEC in Monterey, CA who discusses his theory that homeowners would rather produce their own electricity from solar than buy from the local utility company if the after tax price is the same or less.

Knight believes that the significant reduction in grid tied solar electric systems has made building a net zero energy home more affordable for the average homeowner. To support his theory, Knight created the SPER chart which compares the Solar Provided Electric Rate with the after tax equivalent rate of electricity.
