Single mother receives first zero-net home in Kentucky
OWENSBORO, Ky. (WFIE) - Owensboro now has the first zero net home in Kentucky.
Atmos Energy and Habitat for Humanity dedicated the home to a single mother of four on Thursday. Officials say the home will produce the same amount of energy it consumes in a year, which will save the family money on their utility bills.
Jamie Sowders is the new homeowner. She says having a new home will be a game-changer for her family.
“I’ve been renting since I was 18 years old,” Sowders said. “This is going be a huge change for us. It’s words that I can’t even describe. I’m so happy, it’s so beautiful.”
Sowders says she will start her move-in process soon.
