Event Description

an Francisco Architect Frank Bergamaschi thought he built a pretty efficient home for his family in 2000, but when he decided to investigate installing a PV system he was alarmed at the size of the system required to offset his home’s electrical usage. He began sleuthing how best to reduce electricity usage, and discovered that he could achieve significant savings through monitoring and managing his home’s energy system. He was so successful with his efforts that he was able to meet the Thousand Home Challenge while cutting the PV system size in half, the second home in California to achieve this aggressive goal. Not satisfied to stop there, Frank recently enlisted the help of Rick Chitwood to do a full diagnostic energy assessment. Join this webinar to hear the details of how Frank successfully met the Thousand Home Challenge through baseload sleuthing, PV, and occupant behavior.
