The prince has designed the high-tech, yet traditionally styled 'eco-town' in Devon, England.
He is part of a consortium of businesses that are planning to build 'Sherford' a town that is eventually hoped to become home to some 12,000 people in 5,500 homes. The village, described as a market town, is expected to be built by 2020.
Charles said: "Build again the types of places we all know strike a chord in our, by now, rather bewildered hearts, however 'modern' we are - places that convey an everlasting human story of meaning and belonging."
The Prince's Foundation for the Built Environment and developer Red Tree have said they want half of all Sherford's energy to come from renewable sources on site, mainly from large turbines. Three quarters of buildings will be fitted with solar panels. Sherford will also have a Georgian-style high street, ban cars from some areas, and use the sun to heat water.
The town is similar to the village of Poundbury, a village designed for Prince Charles' Foundation in Dorset, built on grounds belonging to his Duchy of Crownwall, ten years ago.
