HOW SMALL FOR NET ZERO LIVING?

This 10 x 10 x 10 'cube' is a net zero emissions house for one, which generates income via the UK's feed-in tariff.  This allows excess solar energy that feeds back to the grid to be sold the the utility company at an agreed-upon rate.  City of Gainesville is currently offering this program to its solar users. It's still going strong since we featured it in this March 2012 post.   

The video below highlights the built-in features and energy saving equipment of the Cube.  I imagine placing it in a climate with mostly year-round outdoor living, would resolve some claustrophobia issues!
