has built a demonstration smart in California that promises to more energy than its will use.

The Honda Home U.S. is a 1,944-square-foot that uses renewable sources, sustainable building and innovative construction techniques. the average home consumes megawatt hours of electricity year, the Honda Smart sends 2.6 megawatt hours to the grid.

That difference is due to a 9.5 kW solar array on the roof. The occupants are unlikely to use that energy, so it can send power to a 10 kWh battery for storage. That the home’s electronics can still sip the stored solar power night falls.

Some of the solar power directly to a Honda Fit EV electric which comes with the In fact, it can charge from power in just two hours.

The Smart Home is located in UC West Village, the country’s development of homes designed zero net power usage. Larger

For this project, however, the car is a backseat to the holistic smart energy management system Honda developed.

We are focused on than just mobility, Michael Koenig, project As a society, we really need to beyond just vehicles.

For instance, a geothermal heat provides hot water, heating and for the Smart Home. Shutters and open and close automatically for heating and cooling, and all hot water are designed to travel the shortest distance to keep heat to a minimum. A smart energy system lets homeowners how much energy is in use.

Koenig calls the Smart the house of the near future, and that 90 percent of the technology in building the home is off-the-shelf and today. For example, cork is for insulation, and builders users a low-carbon concrete. Filtered water is used for irrigation.

many homeowners may not be familiar those products and concepts.

not quite in the mainstream conversations are having when they’re their homes or remodeling homes, Koenig said.

The house is located in the UC Davis Village, a planned community of homes outside of the college A university faculty or staff will live in the home for years, during which Honda will collect on how well it performs. That will then be published for researchers and utility companies to
