What makes your home a Green or Healthy Home?

Massive southern facing windows provide plenty of energy for passive solar.
While this is a passive solar home, it still has the luxury of being on the grid (IREA for electric and propane tank on site). Many windows were replaced this year, along with all the skylights, newly resealed EDPM roof.
