First zero-emission home unveiled in UK

Zero-emission Home | From BBC

The BBC reports, “The UK has unveiled the first zero-emission house that will set the environmental standard for all new homes in future.”

The “Lighthouse” features solar panels, a biomass boiler, and water efficiency devices such as rainwater harvesting. Also, its owners will be able to tell if they are wasting any energy through a “smart metering” system.

There’s no details about when the house will be built, how much it’ll cost, or what materials will be used for construction. So, really, it’s not the first zero-emission house until it’s built.
