About the Home

GBS Building SupplyGenesis Homes, and Carolina Green Builders are currently working to raise approximately $150,000 in materials and labor for one of the Upstate’s first net-zero homes. The house, which is scheduled to begin construction in early March, will be part of Genesis Homes’ ongoing work in Greenville’s Greenline-Spartanburg neighborhood and will serve as an example of how sustainable building practices can help reduce energy consumption and substantially lower the cost of living. The Greenville Area Interfaith Hospitality Network (GAIHN), which provides transitional housing for homeless families in the Upstate, will recommend a family to move into the home once it is completed.

Designed by Clemson University School of Architecture and Group 1.6 Architects, the home incorporates a sustainable design that substantially reduce the overall energy costs of the home when compared to typical new construction. During the day, solar panels on the roof will produce more energy than the home consumes, with the excess energy sold back to the grid. The home uses standard power in the evenings, equaling out to a “Net Zero” in energy consumption.
