Single-family homes, townhouses, community spaces, schools, offices, and even power plants demonstrate that relying on solar, wind, and geothermal energy doesn’t have to cost more. Each inspiring design harmonizes nature, technology, and democratic space and shows that renewable energy can be appealing and accessible to everyone.
