Solar Panels Make the Net Zero Home Complete

Our latest build, the Net Zero house in John Muir Circle, is now truly a Net Zero home!  SolarCity technicians installed 24 solar panels that will create an estimated 6,165 kwH of power annually.  This is enough energy to offset 234,643 pounds of CO2 over 20 years, equivalent to driving a car 254,010 miles or saving 47,046 gallons of water that would be used to generate electricity.
