The BrightBuilt Barn is an attempt to push the envelope of sustainable design. It is the practical outcome of an in-depth collaboration by a Who's-Who team of Maine's green engineers and professionals, and a visionary client to create a super green, offsite fabricated net-zero building that can be adapted and replicated over time. Designers, building fabricators, high performance building experts and solar energy professionals from all over the northeast have participated in the project.
The barn glows green when it is producing more energy than it consumes; yellow indicates a borderline condition; red means that energy usage is currently higher than required to meet our yearly Net Energy goal.
This could add a whole new dimension to "keeping up with the Jones'es".
