Just for fun: The home of the future

The U.S. Commerce Department's National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) has been experimenting with energy-efficient home design. They believe their model home 'Net Zero Energy Residential Test Facility', or NZERTF, will produce as much energy as it uses over the course of a year.

I would volunteer to test whether this house is as energy efficient as the researchers predict. How about you?
