Each year the International Builders’ Show attracts tens of thousands of attendees from all over the world. One of the highlights of each session is the New American Home.
The NAH is a show home featuring the latest and greatest in home construction, from pioneering designs to innovative products to cutting-edge technology. Energy-efficient designs, techniques and systems are always integral elements.
Once again this year, Cooper Roofing & Solar installed the rooftop solar system on the New American Home. According to Drew Smith of Two Trails, the NAH’s Green Consultant, the solar array could provide as much as 83% of the home’s energy usage. That’s the way to take advantage of the desert sun!
In addition to the photos below you can see the home’s solar system featured in the Phase 7 video on the IBS’s New American Home website (at approximately 0:10 and 3:20).
