Net zero-energy Caribbean home
Here is the outside of the home from Team Puerto Rico. The rooms are laid out to capture the ocean breezes for natural cooling. Inside, it uses reclaimed teak and redwood, and a screen that allows air to come in but blocks the sun. After the Solar Decathlon, the house will be used as a permanent exhibit for a technical park in Caguas, Puerto Rico.
