Our home boasts many green attributes: It has a state-of-the-art solar system installed on the roof which powers most of the home electrical needs. It also has a sophisticated rain-water catchment system which allows us to conserve drinking water by using rainwater for the gardens. South-facing windows capture the sun and we have energy efficient lighting throughout.
