Forner Simonetta Residence Receives 2018 Zero Energy Hero Award

Sam and his wife have been living as zero energy hero’s in northern MI for some years now. In 2018 they netted roughly 2,000 kwhs have you account for nearly 1,000 kwhs of wood stove burning but after you factor in electric car use.

“We do burn a small amount of wood in a Tulikivi soapstone masonry heater, but all wood is harvested from already fallen or dead trees on our property, and we cut this wood with an electric chainsaw powered with home produced electricity.  I included wood usage in the “Wood” section on your spreadsheet.”
