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
People on a limited or fixed income will benefit from having no heat or electric bills. They can also charge a hybrid vehicle with the extra electricity produced without having to plug it in (possibly using induction charging) saving on fuel costs too.
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 a robotic vacuum. Robotic lawn mowers are possible, as well as heated sidewalks for cold climates in areas that allow them.
The net cost of owning an Energy Positive Home can be $200 to $500 less per month than a typical new home.
A unifying project like building a community center 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.
