LEED Platinum will be impressive, it's pretty difficult to attain unless the stars line up right. I've been studying on and off to take the AP test, you wouldn't believe how indepth it gets with this stuff.
I take it you're sourcing as much local material as humanly possible?
Have you guys looked into the solar roof tiles at all? They are fairly new on the market out here.
btw, are you guys allowed to be totally "off grid" in the literal sense?

I'm waiting for the modular home company to send me their marketing packet that outlines in detail all the specifics of what makes this home green, soon as I get it I'll post the details. My company was actually hired by the modular home company to be the local general contractors on this project.
The solar roof tiles are cool, I have seen them.

Just stumbled upon this thread tonight and I am impressed.
I have a question; I have seen roof tiles that look like those Spanish tile roofs but actual section are solar panels but blend so well into the roof they are hardly detectible unless you really look for them.
Can you tell me more about them and if your company does such projects?
I will follow this thread as well as the thread on the green build forum as I am very interested in learning more about these types of construction projects as I want one built form myself one day in the near future.
Looks good so far!

I'll keep this thread updated as well. We are expecting to set the house on January 13th.
I haven't used solar roof shingles yet, but I've been following the new products coming out. There are some really cool ones that actually take the place of asphalt shingles and blend right in.
I have installed more traditional solar panels and posted a thread on this forum. Check the embedded YouTube video of the electric meter literally running backwards https://www.luxury4play.com/construct...n-w-solar.html
