The future of renewable energy is making it look cool
For The Verge and Curbed’s home of the future, renewable energy generation is directly integrated into the design of the house. Grant Imahara experiences how the home of the future can both generate its own power and reduce how much energy it needs.

Well of course tesla !!!
what about hale
I mean the house of the future would have a Tesla not a Ford F-150
Anyone know what panels those are? Thanks.
Thanks to YouTube I built a 3 Kw 48v system that provided my family with power 24 hrs/day during Hurricane María in Arecibo, Puerto Rico. I wired two power outlets separated from the house so it was simple and not dangerous doing it that way.
i see tons of office job people talking about a f-150…i guess they do not know what a truck was built for. trade skills
Tesla solar roof anyone?
You can’t have a home of the future and own a gas car 😂.
3:31, where can I get that iPad stand?
What was the background song
Can you tell me which architecture firm is behind this tech home?
There is a massive contradiction here with regards to energy efficiency if you are going to own that massive fuel guzzling Ford, where is the Tesla.
The roof of the house at least should be white to reflect any light not being absorbed by the solar panels, not only will this cool down the house, reducing a bit of the AC needed, but also make up for the melting ice caps that were reflecting light before. The more light reflected, the cooler the earth becomes, which means more white ice will form, and reflect more light, and so on and so forth.
Would be nice to see an electric car in the drive and highlight how those solar panels can charge the car. Ford F150 is a gas guzzler with lots of poisonous emissions – a vehicle of the PAST.
Wow. ‘Financially accessible’ ?
President Carter is an innovator a thinker outside box catch up people.
What about teslas solar roof ?
I think the F-150 helps scale the size of the home
¿It works with or without of the grid in the future?
This is not the house of the future.
you should just use tesla and the tesla car to
I need the pirce of this house
have fun clearing leaves and stuff falling off those trees onto the solar panels which are also blocking half the sunlight, one tree branch dropping on there and it’s gone. and the panels fitted together are also not water tight, rain will easily fall right through and down onto your car, the panels are not mounted at enough of an angle for rain and leaves to slide off.
Also, the house is far from energy efficient with that many big windows, heating and cooling costs will be massive. the air-conditioning draws 6kw of power as input, just how massive is the air-con that’s needed to cool that small house?
These houses are far too big to begin with.
That smart home stuff is a scam. You install everything on an Ipad that ONLY the company can program and so when you want to connect a device to your home, you would have to call the company. The way to make money today, is by unnecessary subscriptions.
At 3:07 are the panels on the far side cracked already? How durable these panels are?
Solar carport is Not that innovative….
Internet refrigerators were a fad in the late 90’s which turned out to be a commercial failure. I’m surprised they tried it a second time.
LOL…I have built two net zero homes of the future 10 and 5 years ago that are both solar powered. I am grid tied to share my surplus, but I live with any luxury one really needs, and the homes are ICF and built to stand up to the strongest winds with no worries and last millennia. All you need is the will to do it, and I am not a millionaire by any means.
wow my modern house is so pretty
could the windows be made of double pane glass with an inert gas between them, or use Lexan for the panes. Lexan does not transmit heat through it as easily as glass.
I think you can see how to make it on Avasva . This is just an advice 😉
They should install a green roof. I’ve heard it would lower the need for air conditioning.
How would you power your home of the future?
@5:50 This will ultimately be the game changer. We all have smartphones and all of this is basically incorporated into an app already. When young HS students sharing a condo have access to this kind of energy usage display they will certainly use energy wisely and care a lot where this energy is coming from. Not necessarily for the good of the planet (although you’d hope it would be) but for the good of their wallet. As far as the Ford F-150 is concerned, I hope it is enjoying its soon to be squashed dominance of the market. Rivian and Tesla will eat Ford’s lunch very soon.
imagine one day not needing power companies that keeps people living in dense populations in poverty
"New low score" haha just got that!
The methods of "green energy" are all so incredibly inefficient and fraught with problems that the only way they can in ANY way be brought to bear is with incredible amounts of government subsidies – DIRECT subsidies, not tax credits.
My wife and I have an electric car – which we love by the way – but the Porsche and Lexus get used any time we are going out of town. The infrastructure fully exists to support them – not so with the electric.
And the wind/solar adherents? Much better you go with hydro-electric. But liberals have been killing those plans for decades too. And the water conserved instead of just going in the oceans was also be a boon to mankind.
Why only do the roof of what would be a shelter for the vehicle why wasn’t the whole roof made from solar panels
Really enjoy it. Let’s check Avasva plans also
Li-ion battery? Pfft, how primitive. Plus those batteries would need to be replaced every 5 years. And that’s an expensive thing to replace. Plus lithium mining is not environmentally friendly.
I’d power my future home with a mini nuclear fusion reactor that’s well shielded and inconspicuous.
House of my dreams. just put a model x parked there
3:01 optical illusion
Can this withstand a 220 kph typhoon wind?
It’s got look good.
solar takes 10 years to pay itself. it’s a terrible investment :V
