sPassive House in the Woods

I’d like to add that $25.25 of Dr. Konkol’s electricity bill goes to the service fees, which means the actual cost of electricity consumed in November was only about $35. It will be interesting to track this over a year and report back an average, since these winter months are going to be more energy intensive than the swing seasons and the summer. In addition, November was incredibly cloudy in the Town of Hudson, leading to very little energy production. And before I forget to mention it—the electricity bill is the only utility bill at the house, so the $35 included the entire energy purchase for heating, ventilation, hot water, and household electricity.

Carbon Footprint added to Merriam-Webster Dictionary

Here is the link to the Merriam-Webster website entry.

Carbon footprint (1999): the negative impact that something (as a person or business) has on the environment; specifically: the amount of carbon emitted by something during a given period.

On that note, remember that Passive House building energy standard creates buildings with the lowest certified carbon footprint (for operation) in the world.
