How does solar energy power the house?
It’s not magic – it’s super-efficient technology! haus.me is designed for high energy efficiency and low energy consumption. Roof integrated solar panels can generate 7kWh per hour nominal power, so you’ll have plenty of power.
Energy is also stored in a back-up battery, which can power your house for more than one week. If energy resources dip, the home can switch to low-energy consumption.
Your batteries will recharge at sunrise.
How, where, why
haus.me can be used as a primary residence, a vacation home, a guest house, studio, or income-producing secondary dwelling – like an Airbnb rental — or as an autonomous hotel unit.
And the ‘where’ is definitely a moveable feast, your huas.me dwelling can be located in a dream location – think mountain-top, ocean-front, remote forest – or in a dense neighbourhood – think multi-family housing, an ADU, rental unit, guest home, parent-in-law suite, or studio office.
"The house works like your iPhone," says Gerbut. "All of the operating systems are connected to the cloud and you can upload specifications, update systems, and control it remotely."
haus.me Autonomous Off-the-Grid Smart House delivery.
Haus.me is currently aimed at the luxury end of the market, with pricing starting at $199,999 for the grid-connected base model, which can be customized to include off-grid technologies and other features.
And, customers who don’t purchase off-grid customisation still reap energy-saving benefits in the base package. Thanks to the prefab home’s airtight envelope, the house can be heated with less energy than is needed to boil a cup of coffee—even when the temperature dips below 23 degrees celcius, says Gerbut.
"We plan to make it more affordable in the future, but right now the key point is that we use high-quality finishes, natural wood, expensive electronics, built-in furniture, smart appliances, and more," says Gerbut.
"Essentially, it’s a luxury dwelling and vacation home that you can install anywhere in the world."
