DESCRIPTION OF WEBINAR:
George and Ellen Beeler decided to take on the renovation of a 1940 vintage home in Petaluma, CA 14 years ago. Over that time, a 3-stage deep energy reduction (DER) project unfolded that ended up with the Beeler residence becoming the first home in California to officially meet the Thousand Home Challenge. While the first webinar in this series looks at a number of California case studies, comparing the monitored results across properties (including the Beeler home), this webinar dives into the details of the entire effort of the Beelers, including their broader commitment to living a sustainable lifestyle. George will share the many lessons he learned throughout the entire process, including what was most successful as well as what could have been done differently. He will also share his most recent experience with an electric vehicle and its effect on the home's utility bills.
By participating in this webinar, attendees will
1. Learn the details of a completed multi-stage deep energy reduction project
2. Explore the energy performance results of this project and how it met the Thousand Home Challenge threshold
3. Hear about the lessons learned, what was most successful, and what could have been done differently
