Zero-Energy Plans, LLC is the leading provider of proven Energy Efficient home designs to mainstream builders and do-it-yourselfers worldwide. Each of the High Performance Home Designs available through this site will use less than half the energy of a home built to the 2006 IECC, and have roof plans allowing sufficient south facing space for at least 3 KW of photovoltaic solar panels. Most importantly, they are very affordable, with styling just like any other home. Every home built to these plans is qualified under the IRS Tax Code Section 1332, Credit for Construction of New Energy Efficient Homes of the Energy Policy Act of 2005. This important Tax Credit has been renewed through 2011.
We are now offering PROVEN home plans that are so efficient they will not only power themselves, they will also power your car. Imagine living a completely carbon-free life! Break out of the oil-dominated society, and live your life the way you want, in full control of your own energy destiny! If OPEC had bombs, they would probably be dropping them on Zero-Energy Plans.com!
Most people will spend twice as much on energy for their house and car over the life of a thirty-year mortgage as they spend on the initial purchase of their house! One of our Positive NRG Homes™ can provide all the energy you ever need for the car and the house. In effect, you could have your HOUSE for FREE!

We are starting to see other calculators that do what ours do, some even better than ours, but we were the first to offer the honest side-by-side comparison of different fuel types and equipment types.

Four years in a row, a Zero-EnergyPlan.com home has been honored with an Energy Value Housing Award, sponsored by the US Department of Energy and the NAHB Research Center. To qualify for these awards, the homes must not only be super-energy-efficient, but also must be affordable. Energy Efficient Homes begin with a tight, well insulated Building Envelope, and our plans are proven winners in this regard. Your local conditions will influence minor changes to our plans, and will help determine exactly which energy systems you will use in your home. We will guide you through those selections at no additional cost. Our plans have already been proven in a number of different climates and geographic areas. Arctic Home Plan versions are available for several of our most popular plans.
True Zero Energy Homes have never before been as easy to build as with a Zero-EnergyPlans.com home plan.
