Welcome to Futureville, Part three

We continue down the street and soon pull into the driveway of our new house. Everything in that house is Eco friendly. From the solar panels on the roof, to the recycled building material, the paint, appliances, heating and pluming, windows and doors, to the sensors and wiring, that makes it into a so called “smart house”. So, now that we are here, let’s take a look around. Our driveway and the sidewalk, is of course made of recycled rubber, which makes for a very quiet approach to the house in case someone comes home late and doesn’t want to wake up the other occupants. Its also water repellent and slip proof. The water for the sprinkler system is connected to the municipal water system, which is fed by recycled and cleaned water, coming from the sewage treatment plant. As we already know, the drinking water is being delivered from a groundwater well. Now its time to go in and take a look at the inside. We can immediately feel how comfortable the temperature is. This is not only due to the energy friendly windows and doors, but also to the insulation in the hollow spaces in the walls. It’s made of recycled plastics mixed with some other components and turned into foam that is then applied by a sprayer. All the doors and windows are of course made from recycled material. They are weather proofed, make almost no sound and help to keep the temperature year round at a comfortable level without having to use too much of the ac in the summer, or the heating system in the winter. All the entrances and exits into the house are outfitted with sensors and there are cameras in each room, which help us to monitor our house, via iPod or any other internet connection, when we are on the road. Every room in the house has energy saving light bulbs as well as sensors that turn the light of and on, anytime someone enters or exits the room. The entire system is also linked to the security control center at city hall, which can quickly respond to any possible emergency. The furniture is also made of recycled material. Most of the wood products used in the interior or exterior are made from recycled wood. Some larger pieces come from the lumberyard adjoining the tree farm a few miles outside of the town. All the paint is made of eco friendly components, and contains no harmful chemicals like lead or petroleum based substances. The appliances in the house are all energy efficient. The washer and the toilet are the two things in the house that are fed by the recycled water. Everything else, like the sink, dishwasher and shower are fed by the drinking water system. All the waste water is collected and runs through the sewage pipes to the sewage treatment plant. So, where is all the electricity that powers all this, coming from? It’s coming from two sources. First it comes from the houses own solar panels, integrated in the design of the house. Secondly the house is hooked into the municipal power grid, which is fed by the wind turbine farm outside of town. When the houses own system produces more power than is actually needed, it’s fed back into the municipal grid. In case there is not enough power generated by the house itself, or in an emergency, the power from the grid will take over. In the garage, we find the hook up to recharge our car. It’s as simple as plugging in a cord from the house to the car. Naturally there are a lot of other cars in town, using many different alternative fuels. We will take a look at the cars and their fuels in the next post.
