Illinois Solar House Will Also Power Electric Car
URBANA – The home Ty and Deb Newell are building in Urbana will have enough solar power to heat and cool the place – plus run the car.
Ty Newell, a retired University of Illinois professor of mechanical engineering, has always been interested in solar energy and other green technologies. So he decided to put them to work in creating the Newells' retirement home.
The home, dubbed the "Equinox" house, is under construction on Haydon Drive on the north side of the Beringer Commons subdivision. Beringer Commons is on the east side of Urbana, at the northwest corner of U.S. 150 and High Cross Road.
