Platinum LEED Home
Thanks for your interest in our Platinum Leed Home.
Welcome to Energy Environmental Corporation's Platinum LEED Home web site. The purpose of this site is to provide you with information and resources regarding the construction of our platinum LEED home and to promote green homebuilding practices.
The innovative design and integrated renewable energy systems provide our home with heating, cooling, hot water and electricity. Integrated systems combine geothermal heat pumps, solar hot water, solar photovoltaic (PV) and advanced controls to achieve greater overall energy efficiency than can be realized with individual stand-alone components.
The combination of passive solar design, a high quality building envelope and integrated renewable energy systems result in net zero annual energy required to heat and cool the home. It also incorporates ENERGY STAR design concepts, products and partnering initiatives. As a result, this home is 80% more energy efficient than typical homes of its size.
The practice of integrating energy systems within the home and its environment have been commonplace in Europe for many years. We hope that this web site contributes to public education on the environmental and economic benefits of these systems and will help advance their utilization within the United States.
