A few years ago, Honda and the University of California, Davis launched a Smart Home project focused on energy efficiency.

A great amount of the efficiency solutions were part of the project, including a 9.5 kW solar rooftop installation and an electric car - in this case, a Honda Fit EV, with both a charging station and an energy storage system present.

The project was recently presented by Auto 0-60's Javier Mota (the first video concern the home, and the second one the garage specifically).

“Honda Smart Home US, construction of which began in April 2013, will serve as a residence for a member of the UC Davis community, whose selection will soon be announced. The fully-furnished home comes equipped with a Honda Fit EV battery electric vehicle for the resident’s daily transportation.”

“In addition to showcasing Honda’s vision for sustainable, zero-carbon living and personal mobility, the home will function as a living laboratory where the company, along with researchers from UC Davis and Pacific Gas and Electric (PG&E), will evaluate new technologies and business opportunities at the intersection of housing, transportation, energy and the environment.”
