Brilliant design, Via Paramus daily voice

Unlike most New Jerseyans, the Parikh family of Paramus couldn’t wait for Winter Storm Jonas — it let them try out their one-of-a-kind geothermal/solar snow-melt system for the first time.

The snow might have climbed over two feet in some parts of Bergen and Passaic counties, but the heated driveway and walkway outside the Parikh house melted an inch and a half an hour.

When it was done, there was nothing left to shovel.

“What we are doing is using the environment to battle the environment,” said Asit Parikh, who helped his father Raj develop what they call “Zenesis House.”
