Atmos Energy and Habitat for Humanity of Williamson County are unveiling a natural gas-powered Zero Net Energy (ZNE) demonstration home. ZNE home will demonstrate significantly reduced greenhouse gas emissions. It will produce as much energy as it consumes over the course of a year.

“Natural gas plays a pivotal role in fueling a low carbon energy future that ensures families have access to safe, reliable, and affordable energy while also protecting and preserving our environment,” said Darwin Stamport, Atmos Energy vice president of marketing. “A perfect example of this initiative in action is our partnership with Habitat for Humanity of Williamson County to build an affordable and energy efficient home for the Molock family.”

“Our future homeowner, Ms. Molock, is the ideal candidate to receive this beautiful three-bedroom home,” said Debbie Hoffman, executive director of Habitat for Humanity of Williamson County, Texas. “Since 2018, she has endured severe health conditions that continue to this day and require help from her family to care for her 3-year-old daughter. This ZNE home will provide Ms. Molock and her family both security and comfort as she manages her health issues.”

To build the ZNE home, Habitat for Humanity Williamson County and Atmos Energy are collaborating with the Rinnai America Corporation, the City of Taylor, DFD Architects Inc., Yale Locks & Hardware, Kidd Roofing, Whirlpool, and Valspar. 

“Building an energy efficient home with affordable utility bills is our ultimate goal,” added Stamport. “The energy report for the design of this ZNE home estimates average monthly utility bills at less than $50 combined for both gas and electricity. This will offer peace of mind to Ms. Molock and the opportunity to focus on the health of herself and her family.”
