Beach House designed by Nathan Good Architect generates own electricity actually it generates more electricity than it can use. This energy sufficient home, Cannon Beach Residence is situated at Oregon Beach. Not only does it have magnificent views it is engineered that it uses less energy than what it can generate. To me that is awesome, when I was a little girl I wanted to become an Architect and my goal was to designs home that would be good for the earth. I was just really bad at maths, so seeing designs like this is awesome.
The house has 12 inch thick concrete walls and 5kWh rooftop photovoltaic system. The house was constructed using a lot of recycled materials made to last for generations. There are Solar thermal tubes to provide hot water with a ground source heat pump that works like an air conditioner heating or cooling the air. Even the shape of the house was chosen for energy conservation in mind.
