Utilities are the main systems used through out a house such as electricity, plumbing, heating, air conditioning, garage.

Wind Power

  • Wind can be harnessed by turbines into electricity
  • most turbines are clustered together and are sited in suitable areas
  • houses would have to be located near sites like these but would not have to have extra attachments like a solar powered house would

Wave Power

  • electricity can be generated from waves by many different types of machines built over the years
  • since 70% of earth is covered by water it would make sense to take advantage of it in a positive way that does not harm the environment
  • a house using this type of electricity would have to live near a coast.

Geothermal Power

  • geothermal energy comes from hot rocks deep underground
  • natural steam is collected by cracks in the earth or water is pumped down and heated by the rocks to make steam
