Project Green Home: Zero-Net Energy & Electric Vehicle Open House 

 

On Saturday, June 4, 2011, clean energy leader and Palo Alto resident Sven Thesen and family will open their new ultra energy-efficient home to the public and, through partnership with Plug In America, provide the opportunity to ride and drive the latest electric vehicles.


This 2,500 sq. ft. home, based on the European Passive House design, is projected to exceed LEED Platinum rating by at least 20% and use zero net energy. This will be among the first true "net-zero" homes in the state - aligning with the state's ambitious 2020 target.

 

California features the greatest number of zero-net energy (ZNE) buildings in the nation, and with the introduction of ambitious new ZNE goals - all new residential construction by 2020 and all new commercial construction by 2030 - ZNE has moved beyond bold concept to reality, just as "green building" did a few short years ago.

 

This FREE event will feature:

  • Comments from local and regional leaders, including Palo Alto Mayor Sid Espinosa
  • Educational materials and resources
  • Self-guided tour of this high performance 2,500 sq. ft. home
  • Opportunity to ride, drive, charge, and ask questions about the latest in electric vehicles
  • Complimentary food and drink
  • *Parking details to come. Bicyclists are welcome!

 

Join us for this unique opportunity to explore and learn about the benefits of ZNE building and to engage with public officials, business leaders, and members of the green building industry about the future of sustainable building practices in California.

 

Learn about innovations in:

  • Energy efficiency 
  • Water conservation
  • Electric vehicles and charging technologies
  • Lighting systems
  • Integration of renewables and electric vehicles
  • Native and edible landscaping
