Grid Connection, Custom Home Building, and Net Zero Homes in Central Texas
Most net zero buildings are still connected to the electric grid, allowing for the electricity produced from traditional energy sources (natural gas, electric, etc.) to be used when renewable energy generation cannot meet the building’s energy load. When, conversely, on-site energy generation exceeds the building energy requirements, the surplus energy will be exported back to the utility grid. The excess energy production offsets later periods of excess demand, resulting in a net energy consumption of zero.
Energy Efficient Homes in Central Texas
Minimizing energy use through efficient building design is the highest priority in all of our construction projects. Energy efficiency is generally the most cost-effective strategy with the highest return on investment. Maximizing efficiency opportunities before developing renewable energy plans will minimize the cost of the renewable energy projects needed. As our CEO and founder, Lloyd Lee says, “First look at how we can save energy and then look at how we can create it.”

Once energy efficiency measures have been maximized, the remaining energy needs can be met using renewable energy creation. At Native, we have in-house renewable energy specialists that will walk you through your choices for on-site electricity generation.
