Students at Western Washington University are designing and building a zero-net-energy house to address local housing issues and educate the University and community about sustainable home design as part of an initiative called “Project ZeNETH.”
“ZeNETH” stands for “zero-net-energy tiny house.” When completed, the house will produce at least as much energy as it consumes through a rooftop solar PV array, energy efficient systems and smart building design.
