Zero Energy Home Presentation by Rick and Peg Magee
• What we'll do What: This presentation will detail how the Magees changed their “normal” Venice island home into a Zero Energy home. Here is a short writeup of our presentation: "Six years ago, after replacing our roof with a metal one and maximizing the energy efficiency of our house, we installed 30 solar panels on the back side of our house, facing South and West, and have been 100% solar ever since. Two years ago, we added a few more panels so we could have enough power to charge our electric car. We will discuss how existing homes (ours was built in 1993) can be retrofitted to become 100% solar homes. Our system provides power for our two heat pumps (one for the pool), and a pool pump that runs 12 hours a day, plus all our other electrical energy needs. The attached photo shows a view of our house seen from the street." Who: Rick and Peg Magee Who: The event is hosted and coordinated by Transition Venice.

    What we're about

    Public Group

    Transition Venice is part of the worldwide grassroots Transition movement to help make our communities more food and energy resilient. Please join us if you would like to know what you can do to make your life and our community less vulnerable to peak oil and if you are concerned about climate change. Our membership is diverse from people who follow permaculture practices, design energy efficient buildings, build their own solar hot water and electric systems, build electric bicycles, create home or community gardens, love Mother Earth and want to participate in some way. We welcome students, teachers, and all who are curious to "be the change." By building resilience through community, our desire is to facilitate transitioning to a better way of life, together.
