CLEVELAND, Ohio -- A museum exhibit dedicated to saving and recycling energy has, itself, found new life -- as the Cleveland home of a Maryland couple.
"Part of the proof of concept here was that we could build the most energy-efficient house in Northeast Ohio and sell it in the real estate market," said David Beach, director of the museum's GreenCityBlueLake Institute. "So this was not an academic exercise. We were building a real house that people would want to live in."
