Monitoring results over a four-year period document phased retrofits applied to a central Florida home with very high electricity consumption, eventually ending in a home with near-zero energy use. Evaluated over a full year, the average household electricity use was reduced through a combination of efficiency measures and photovoltaic power generation by 82%. Results from the case study, and nine other deep retrofits suggest how an effective zero-energy home (ZEH) program can be implemented in otherwise poorly performing existing homes.
