Say Goodbye to
energy payments.

Say Hello
to Energy Independence.

(November 29, 2012) HOUZE® Advanced Building Science Inc., along with the City of Houston, debuted the first-of-its-kind zero-energy homes in the United States, in the community of Independence Heights, just north of downtown Houston. The Honorable Mayor Annise Parker, along with city officials and the HOUZE® development team, unveiled the new, affordable, energy-efficient homes.

These homes introduce a new, affordable option for buyers by producing more energy than they consume, redefining the American Dream with homes that cost less to own, operate and maintain.

HOUZE® (the "ZE" stands for Zero Energy) Advanced Building Science Inc. is an innovative, technology commercialization company integrating disruptive technologies into real estate development and building. The company's mission is to empower the building industry with next generation building systems, materials and technologies to create affordable net-zero energy homes and buildings.

Historic Independence Heights.

Houston, Texas

HOUZE® is developing and building zero-energy, affordable homes in the historic neighborhood of Independence Heights in a public-private partnership with the City of Houston. Independence Heights was the first African American municipality in Texas. Today, HOUZE is working with community leaders to shape the next 100 years.

The HOUZE project is the first of its kind in America, introducing affordable homes that produce significantly more electricity than they use through the utilization of natural gas co-generation Power Cells. The initiative supports current programs from U.S. Housing & Urban Development and the U.S. Department of Energy.
