HOUSTON, TX – The City of Houston has teamed up with Houze to unveil new, affordable energy efficient homes in Independence Heights. These homes produce more energy than they actually consume and are 100% powered by natural gas and power cells. In addition, new home owners will have zero energy payments for 10 years!

This Houze project is the first of its kind in America and plans to conserve energy and work with community leaders to shape the next 100 years.

Going along with the new aged theme; we shot the entire press conference with our iPhone.

We’ll see if this catches on and if people will drop $200,000+ on a house in a neighborhood were most of the homes are boarded up.
