A Real 'Green' House

A Real 'Green' House

Prof. David Mears, Bioresource Engineer, Rutgers University has created a 'green' house out of his Civil War era home in New Jersey. Using alternative energy sources, Mears' residence has maintained a temperature at or above 68 degrees F for the last 25 years without the use of his backup oil heating system. Read more about Mears' energy efficient house at LiveScience.com(1). Also, check out an 11-page paper(2) (PDF) written by Prof. Mears about how he designed and implemented the heating system in his home.
