John Weber is on to a new home project after completing a super efficient, net zero home a few years ago that he built from the ground up. This time around he is retrofitting a typical Boise home built in the 70’s to make it as efficient as possible and go net zero again. The most important goal of this project is to keep the upgrades as affordable as possible to show people they can achieve near net zero energy living even in a very inefficient existing home.
Tune in to my conversation with John to learn about this very cool home retrofit project and how he has reduced the energy demand of the home and coupled that with a solar pv system and his plug-in electric car named Ice Storm. As always you can listen on air at 93.5 FM or 89.9 FM or stream the show via www.radioboise.org.
Check back on this blog post for pictures of John’s house including some of the features we’ll discuss on the show and some tips on where to find products and services he utilized for his home.
