Solar Powered itHouse

ithouse 01 Solar Powered itHouse

The itHouse is a design system developed by Taalman Koch that utilizes a series of components prefabricated off-site in order to better control the construction waste, labor, and quality of the finished product. Conceived as a small house with glass walls and open floor plan, the itHouse maximizes the relationship of the occupant to the surrounding landscape while minimizing the impact to delicate site conditions.

Energy efficiency is achieved in the itHouse through passive heating and cooling, utilizing site orientation and cross ventilation, radiant floor heating, hi-efficacy appliances & equipment and the use of solar photovoltaic & thermal panels.

    This is really interesting, i didn’t know that it takes less than the space of a roof to power a home! i always presumed it would take much more than that! Solar power is the way to go. Using natural energy is much more cost effective than using electricity. Work out what your electricity bill costs you per month, and see what you can save.
