Passive House provides comfortable&healthy indoor climate without the need to use active heating or cooling appliances

A ZEH combines state-of-the-art, energy-efficient construction techniques, and equipment with renewable energy systems to return as much energy as it takes in on an annual basis. When renewable resources cannot provide the entire home’s power (at night or on a cloudy winter day) the homeowner purchases energy from the utility provider. When renewable resources produce more than the house is using (during sunny days or when no-one is home) power is sent back into the utility grid. In some cases, the utility provider will operate the home’s electric meter in reverse, essentially providing the homeowner with full retail value for their energy.
