A Net Zero energy installation will produce as much energy as it consumes, resulting in a net usage of zero. A Net Zero water installation will limit consumption of water and return water back to the same watershed, without depleting the groundwater. A Net Zero waste installation will reduce, reuse, and recover waste streams with a goal of zero landfill use. Installations selected for the pilot program are striving to reach "net zero" by 2020.
