Our friends at Tech Crunch kindly invite you into the "greenest home in America." In the hills of Silicon Valley lies the grand home known as Tah.Mah.Lah (which draws from the Native American Ohlone tribe's word for "mountain lion"). Dreamed up by Foundation Capital partner Paul Holland and his wife, Linda Yates, the home has the highest LEED certification in the country. It's been built to have minimal environmental impact. So how exactly does it do that? Check out the video above and see for yourself.
