When we discussed our home solar panel project in mid-2011 with friends, one of the first questions everyone asked was, “What’s the payback period before you break-even?” The second question was unsurprisingly, “How much is it costing you?” but the focus always ended up on the payback.

 

After all, if you’re going to invest in green technology, you’re hoping that at some point in the near future, you get ahead of the game. It turns out that something we didn’t plan for — our Chevrolet Volt — is actually helping us boost the ROI and cut our payback time in half.

The Future of Green Building May Be Closer than You Think

The Future of Green Building May Be Closer than You Think | Have a Plastic Bottle? Build a Go Green Project You Can Be Proud Of | Scoop.it

Buildings that consume no outside energy are being developed today -- with existing technology. So much innovative work has been done in green building that a growing number of people are now shifting their focus from means to ends. Their goal: Create buildings that generate as much energy as they need to operate, called net-zero energy buildings (NZEB). Efforts to achieve NZEB are underway in all sectors -- government, academia, the military, not-for-profits and business -- and at all scales: residential, community and commercial. While it is still early days, the results have been impressive.
