Honda is building homes???

Where else but in California would you have an auto manufacturing company build a house. In the state known for automobiles Honda has built a prototype home that would produce more energy than it consumes. Of course central to this energy-efficient home is Honda’s electric car.

The house features a huge 9.5 kilowatt solar array and a 10 kilowatt hour battery to store excess power. Honda’s home energy management system controls the integration of house and the electric Honda Fit the conveniently is in the garage. Even the concrete foundation is unconventional using a low carbon cement mix.

The video below by Honda walks thru the features of the house.
