No, a Net-Zero Energy home does not mean that the home will have $0 utility bills. The right sized roof-top solar can reduce an energy efficient home’s electric energy consumption to zero, but if the home uses natural gas for heating, it will continue to have a natural gas utility bill. Additionally, electric utilities may charge a connection fee, even if there is net zero electric energy consumption.
