Purdue’s ReNEWW House is net-zero defined
The components installed in the house were split up in multiple phases. The first phase, completed at the end of 2015, focused on energy capture and retrofitting the home to include systems and materials such as Enertech Global geothermal systems and solar paneling. Subsequent improvements focus on water-saving renovations, including a greywater system. The second phase of the project focused on updating the house’s water systems to achieve the goal of net-zero water.
