The PowerPod: A Green Home That Arrives In Cambridge, MA
Being Cambridge, MA residents we were very excited to see the news of greener homes arrive in the bay state. What's even more surprising was the fact the PowerPod is designed right in Massachusetts - Lawrence, MA to be exact. We'll have to check out their offerings and perhaps one day have a greener home ourselves.
The PowerPod is a modular home that incorporates many green design elements, including a solar butterfly roof that collects rainwater and includes an active solar array for electricity and hot water. Designed by Lawrence, Massachusetts based PowerHouse Enterprises, the PowerPod can be transported on two trailers to your site for assembly. Measuring just 480 square feet, the floor plan highlights an open living/dining/kitchen area that opens onto a front porch. High ceiling create a sense of spaciousness. A PowerPod home costs about $100,000 or $200 per square foot.
