Renewable energy is the best tool we have for achieving sustainable housing. With renewable power, we can build more efficient homes and streamline energy use to cut down on waste and pollution. The result is a cleaner world and lower utility costs.
However, historic housing creates myriad barriers to renewable energy integration. From the older, uglier methods of solar power collection to infrastructures poorly optimized for alternative energy, older home preservation makes sustainability difficult.
But that doesn’t mean that integrating renewable energy is impossible in historic homes. In fact, there are plenty of things you can do to support renewable usage in an older home. But first, understand the challenges.
