Vision ZERO House
Chevalle Neighborhood, Chaska MN
The Vision Zero home, completed in early 2013 was one of the first of its kind in the region to essentially sustain itself. That doesn’t mean that it is “off the grid.” Actually, it may use some energy from the local utility. But a vision-zero energy home generates the bulk of its own energy and makes enough extra energy to sell it back to the utility through “net metering,” offsetting the amount purchased. Many vision-zero energy homes also use building materials made from renewable resources – for even greater sustainability.
