Viridian Future 1

Aiming to be not just the most environmentally sustainable townhouse in Manhattan, but a net zero energy home.

When we decided that the only way to install solar panels on our building was to put them on a canopy 2.7M (9ft) above the roof, we knew that we had to create a solar canopy that is both an artistic statement in itself, and shows others that solar need not be ugly. So this is the vision we came up with for our roof. What do you think?

Our roof is going to look something like this, with a hot tub heated solely by a solar thermal system in the canopy above, and solar PV panels generating all the electricity the house uses. We are still working on the details, but this is our vision.
