Tax credit*: you may be eligible to receive up to a 30% credit. It includes both the purchase and installation of qualifying products in renewable technologies when purchased and installed from January 1, 2009 through December 31, 2016 and extended though 2021.
Furthermore, energy efficiency should be integrated to the very construction and design of a house and with natural resources available and should be utilized to the maximum. Specifically, windows, skylights, sun tunnels, etc. should be installed in strategic locations to allow for solar heat gain and optimum natural ventilation. Different types of windows should be used for north-facing elevation and different types of windows should be installed for south-facing elevation, and so on.
“Futuristic” houses already exist which have a computerized system designed to control the indoor climate automatically, knowing when to insulate from the cold and when to protect from the heat and provide proper ventilation.
