Situada en el Parque Ecológico Loreto y Peña Pobre en la Ciudad de México, la Casa Ecológica Autosuficiente es una propuesta de la Fundación El Manantial, una institución privada que fomenta la cultura ecológica y la utilización de energías alternas en México.

Esta vivienda está diseñada y construída para reducir el consumo de la energía convencional, el consumo de agua y posee un sistema de tratamiento y reutilización de las aguas residuales.

Funciona con un 100% de energía solar a través de un sistema de celdas fotovoltáicas que generan energía eléctrica limpia y de un sistema solar térmico independiente para calentar el agua.

El sistema constructivo usa materiales naturales como tierra estabilizada (adobe) y madera. Su diseño arquitectónico favorece el control climático al interior de la vivienda de forma natural y también posee un sistema de biodigestión para reciclar la basura orgánica y extraer bio-gas. Aledaño a la casa hay un invernadero donde se cultivan hortalizas con el uso de la hidroponia, la lombricultura y la composta. Esta casa puede ser visitada en cualquier época del año.

Located in the Ecological Park Lotero and Pena Pobre in Mexico City. The Self-Sufficient Ecological House is a proposal of El Manantial Foundation, a private institution that promotes ecological culture and the utilization of alternative energy in Mexico.

This home is designed and built to reduce the conventional energy consumption, water consumption and it holds a system of treatment and reuse of residual waters.

It works with 100% solar energy through a system of photo cells that generate electrical clean energy and an independent thermal solar system to heat the water.

The building system utilizes natural materials such as adobe and wood. Its architectonic design helps the climate control inside of the house in a natural way and also has a system of bio-digestion to recycle organic trash and extract bio gas. Near the house there is a greenhouse where they grow vegetables utilizing compost. You can visit the house any time of the year.
