    Join us for a tour of a carbon-free house newly developed in the city of Fresno. This home is built with passive house features, making it an ultra energy-efficient house. All energy needs are covered by its solar system, which is designed to also cover the fuel needs of two electric cars. The solar system can be used on or off the grid. No gas line runs to the property. 

    Join us for a tour with Paul Miller, Vernal Architecture, Jodi Fitzpatrick, Pax Domus and Seth Tilley, Donald P. Dick Air Conditioning.

    Space is very limited, sign up early. Refreshments and light appetizers will be provided.
