Energy Positive Homes, Inc. in Mondovi, Wisconsin will work with builders in designing and constructing communities for veterans that create more energy than they consume. We combine SIP's (Structural Insulated Panels), a specific type of foundation, Mini-splits for heating and air conditioning, and solar panels connected to the grid. These homes are built to create 110% of the estimated energy needed for each home, for new home construction costs of today.
Model Home built and tested
Veterans on a limited or fixed income will benefit from having no heat or electric bills. If the community has a shared garden area and indoor aquaponics garden, their food bills can be reduced as well, feeding our best with fresh organic produce. They can also charge a hybrid vehicle with the extra electricity produced without having to plug it in (using induction charging) saving on fuel costs too.
Additionally, they can use 70% to 80% less water, as these homes can have atomizers in the showers and faucets produced by Nebia and Altered Nozzle.
These homes will be priced around new construction prices, but be better in so many ways. With a much smaller energy appetite, they will need fewer solar cells to power them. They go up faster, are 2 1/2 times stronger, quieter, and feature robotic vacuums and lawn mowers, as well as heated sidewalks for cold climates.
Our goal is to create better-built communities of homes with a net cost of hundreds of dollars less per month for veterans.
The net cost of owning an Energy Positive Home can be $200 to $500 less per month than a typical new home,
and potentially healthier as well if there is a community garden.
A unifying project like building a community center and indoor Aquaponics garden helps create neighborhood cohesion.
The idea is to get people in a new neighborhood working together as a group, veterans meeting each others' needs.
Serving each other makes unity possible.
