Great Green Home | Invision Zero Home by Addison Homes
Addison Homes of Greer, South Carolina, built the “Invision Zero South Carolina” home to prove to its market that a conventionally styled zero energy home that produces as much electricity as it consumes is not only possible, it’s practical. In the process the company ended up winning a 2016 Housing Innovation Award from the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE’s) Zero Energy Ready Home program.
Addison Homes achieved a net zero by incorporating a variety of highperformance products and processes to maximize efficiency—to some 70% beyond code—then adding a solar photovoltaic system capable of generating enough renewable energy to meet the home’s remaining electrical needs.
