Salt Lake City — Vivint and Garbett Homes have announced what they call the first affordable, climate 5 net-zero "smart home" to achieve a HERS 0 rating. Located in Herriman, this non-custom, self-sufficient, solar-powered home, called The Zero Home, is one of the first production homes in the United State that can generate as much energy as it consumes.
The home is equipped with Vivint's smart home technology and Vivint Solar's energy array. It generates its own energy, with the potential to offset most or all of the homeowners' utility bills. The average utility bill for residents in the same neighborhood as The Zero Home is about $300 per month.
