ZeroEnergy Design is a green architect and mechanical design firm - focused on green home design, modern houses, Passive House architecture, LEED homes, contemporary architecture, zero energy homes, and residential buildings.
Zero energy, or net zero, homes are a relatively new option in the housing market. This type of home produces as much energy as it consumes, with the help of solar panels and other kinds of energy generators. Husband and wife team Mitchell Spence and Tiffany Ivins founded Living Zenith, Utah's first community of net zero homes. The couple also founded Redfish Builders, the company that designed and built Living Zenith.

A zero-energy building (ZE), also known as a zero net energy (ZNE) building, net-zero energy building (NZEB), net zero building is a building with zero net energy consumption, meaning the total amount of energy used by the building on an annual basis is equal to the amount of renewable energy created on the site, or in other definitions by renewable energy sources offsite.
As they planned the home, a target emerged: to have their electricity use be net zero, meaning the amount of electricity used each year roughly equals the amount of renewable electricity created at the house. Solar panels got the Reeds to the magic number. But Laurie, an architect turned art teacher, didn't stop there.
