Imagine 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.”
A home that is self-sustainable?
