We hear a lot of talk about Zero Net Energy (ZNE) buildings. In
California, all new homes are required to be designed to demonstrate
zero net electricity usage beginning in 2020. Other states, including
Massachusetts, are currently discussing whether to mandate similar
requirements. But what will these new requirements mean to the
affordability of new homes? And what impact will they have on the
modular construction industry?
MHBA talked with some of its members to get their take on the subject.
