My efforts have been to solve affordable housing by not using traditional construction but take a common sense application, introduce building energy efficient using factory built houses. We brought Solar and factory built into an ideal marriage of home technology using a roof solar shingle. We had teamed up with Dow Chemical to use their product as the factory built home’s roof. The concept is called Building Integration Photo Voltaic or BIPV. The simplicity of solar was successful. The goal is to connect all home electric operating appliances to the total generation output of the solar array for Net Zero or “off-The-Grid applications.. The home was approved by SCE for NEM interconnection to the utility for ON GRID. We Cased studied it for one year. We presented our Tiny House 395 square foot “Quest” Off-The-Grid concept home on the CA State Capitol West Lawn (Aug 2014) to explore government officials interest in for future ADU applications. We built an award winning energy efficient “Net Zero” modular home to proven Zero Net energy usage before 2020 mandate. It was selected as the “Home of the Month” by MHBA and a “Green Home Award participation” by the USGBC-C4. It has been honored with 2014 PGE “Ca Advanced Home Rebate” and is a CPUC Case Study. Prior to 2012, Green Awards: (1) 2011 MHI National Award Winning home (3) 2010,2011 and 2012 Award Winning Homes for the Ojai Valley Green home Tour,
Our experience in creating new ideas, sharing to the factory, and for them to provide affordable factory built with “Green” technologies is now possible. We strive for real results using our “Plug-n-Play” home design. Home buyers are amazed that other company’s are not nor share performance home results. It creates excitement. When one takes risks; rewards are sure to follow.
