Eco-Friendly House Powered by Solar and Hydroelectricity

Dubbed Iseami House, this sustainable house has been built by Robles Arquitectos. It is located in an isolated region of Peninsula de Osa in Costa Rica, which is self-sufficient in terms of energy and water.

Equipped with a eco-friendly technology, the house has no problems with humidity because it sits one meter above the surface. To reduce the load on its energy generators, Iseami House incorporates several energy-saving systems.

This eco house uses two low-impact hydroelectric turbines that produce 800KWh of energy. On the roof it has a solar array that provides about 10,800KWh of clean electricity.
