You can live a healthier lifestyle, as well as, the most energy efficient lifestyle possible, in Clark County’s first net zero home. In addition, the custom-built home is the first combined Net Zero and NGBS-Emerald certified home in the nation!
The home, located at 15001 NW 25th Avenue, is the first in Urban NW’s new Wild Glen neighborhood in the Felida area of Vancouver, WA. At 2454 square feet, it’s designed to operate at zero cost and produce as much energy as it uses by year’s end. Essentially, it is a home that sustains itself. That doesn't mean that it is "off the grid". Actually, it may use some energy from the local utility. But a net-zero energy home generates the bulk of its own energy and makes enough extra energy to sell it back to the utility through "net metering", offsetting the amount purchased.
The custom-built home has 4 bedrooms and 2.1 baths, and features master-on-the-main living. In addition, this home also features many of the “aging-in-place” design principles, with wide hallways and doorways.
Urban NW promotes a holistic approach to building. Founder Troy Johns says their number one objective is to create communities for the health of the homeowner’s living space and the surrounding environment.
Frankly, as an EcoBroker, it puzzles me why more people aren't concerned with both the health and savings benefits of buying a green home. Yes, the initial purchase price may be a bit higher, but the energy savings continue year after year.
Green Homes in Vancouver, WA and Clark County.
There are many options for buying green, in not only Vancouver, but throughout Clark County. The Washington State building codes are so energy-efficient minded, that often builders need to add only a few more components to get a home energy star rated.
If you're interested in learning more about Green-Built homes in Vancouver, WA, I'd love to be your guide. Living a healthier lifestyle, and saving money, is not just good for you, but good for the planet. It's really all about common sense.
