From The Times-Tribune

Kentucky Governor Steve Beshear toured the near-zero energy housing development in Emlyn which features five energy-effiecient homes designed by University of Kentucky College of Design students.

The houses boast many energy-saving features, including solar panels on the roof.  The energy produced by the solar panels is sold back to the Tennessee Valley Authority, providing an additional source of income for occupants.

"It's a great project", Beshear said.  "Anytime Kentuckians can move into better homes with lower energy costs, it's great."
