Welcome to Net Zero Homes
The End of Utility Costs is Just Beginning.
As are a leader in sustainable building, Nelson Homes now offers Virginia's first affordable Net Zero Energy Home – the ultimate combination of energy-saving technology, comfort, and affordability.
What is a Net Zero Home?
According to the U.S. Department of Energy, a Net Zero energy home is capable of producing renewable energy equal to the amount it consumes. While it doesn't take your home off the local utility grid, it will offset the cost of energy a typical family consumes over the course of a year. Simply put, a net zero home can create as much energy as it uses.
