A home that is self-sustainable?

ImageImagine if you will, Homes in the entire southwest retro-fitted with technologically advanced home elements to harness the power of the sun.  I’m not talking about just solar panels heating the pool, I’m talking about critical elements: a roof, windows and pavement.  There already are roofing tiles that serve as solar panels, and now there is solar glass.  What if we were to incorporate a network of sensors into our driveways, concrete around pool areas and sidewalks?  Even more important, what if we were to perfect a solar storage battery that would hold power until needed?  With this latest technology, I believe we are closer to that dream of a sustainable home that is “off the grid.”

Colorful ‘solar glass’ means entire buildings can generate clean power
