Excerpt from MIT Sloan Article
For 40 years, iconic TV show “This Old House” has shown viewers how to elevate ordinary houses into thoughtful, livable refuges. The net-zero home of David Miller, MS ’91, PhD ’07, encapsulates that mission.
This season the cast visited Miller’s Newton, Massachusetts, home for inspiration before renovating a Rhode Island bungalow. They were impressed: Net-zero homes produce as much renewable energy as they use, and Miller’s home is a paragon of energy efficiency.
“Climate change is the biggest threat to our civilization this century. We have a moral obligation to the next generation,” Miller said in an interview. “Clean energy technology is part of the solution, and I want to walk the talk.”
Miller and his wife, Karen, designed the shingle-style home from scratch in 2011 on the site of an abandoned home in the town just outside of Boston. The family enlisted Vermont-based Maclay Architects, experts in net-zero design, to execute their vision.
