Net Zero on a Budget

The Zero Home near Salt Lake City is one of the first production homes in the country that generates as much energy as it consumes, meaning little or no utility bills for owners.

The home is powered by a 10.29 kW PV array.

Customer surveys have shown that buyers are enticed by green features and super-low energy bills but that they fall in love with the company's less-is-more design.

The home shows off Garbett's contemporary design aesthetic, although company officials shy away from putting a label on the look.

The covered back porch provides wide-open views of the surrounding countryside.

Daylight fills the master bedroom, thanks to plentiful argon-filled low-E windows.

Quartz countertops offer a stylish look in the master bedroom.

The four-car garage is equipped with an electric vehicle charging station.

With Vivint's energy management system, residents can see in real time how much power the home is producing and consuming.

The home is well insulated with spray foam on critical areas such as rim joists, heel trusses, and cantilevers.
