Deltec Homes has teamed up with Appalachian State University to bring an attractive, flexible, and livable new net-zero home design to the market. The Solar Homestead, an award-winning entry in the 2011US Solar Decathlon, is now available nationwide through Deltec Homes.
The Solar Homestead is a self-sustaining, net-zero energy house inspired by the traditional homesteads of early mountain settlers. The homestead utilizes a highly energy-efficient building envelope, incorporating renewable resources and innovative technology into a prototype that is adaptable, self-sufficient, affordable and attractive. The home features a 2 or 3 bedroom floor plan and additional outbuilding modules (“OMs”) for additional living and storage space, arranged according to your needs.
