The Honda Smart Home Produces More Energy Than It Uses
Slide 2 of 11


The Backyard

The 1,945-square-foot home includes a 9.5kW solar photovoltaic (PV) system mounted on the roof, which will actually generate more energy than the home will use on an annual basis. It supplies all of the energy for the home’s space heating and cooling, ventilation, lighting, hot water, appliances and consumer loads, in addition to the energy needed to power the Honda Fit EV. The backyard also has eight 20-foot-deep boreholes, which allow a geothermal heat pump to harness the ground’s relatively stable thermal sink to heat and cool the home’s floors and ceiling throughout the year.
