Falmouth business touts ‘net positive’ house

Falmouth marketing firm TideSmart Global has built what it is calling one of Maine's most energy efficient houses, producing twice the amount of energy needed to power it.

The Associated Press reported that the home, called the Viridescent House, is part of the company's plan to invest up to $15 million into a sustainable business campus in Falmouth.

The company's CEO, Steve Woods, said the house is the state's first "net-positive passive house," meaning that it's up to 90% more energy efficient than a typical home and that the house's solar panels produce more energy than is needed.
