Solar House to Transform Green Home Construction

Solar HouseStanford’s Start.Home is finally taking shape as the students have started the construction of their solar-powered house. With a goal to achieve a net-zero emission status, the solar powered Start.Home will run on a 7kW photovoltaic system which will then provide 30 kilowatt-hours of energy from the sun.

“We want to inspire industry to think about houses that can be built more like cars,” said project manager Derek Ouyang, a double major in civil engineering and architectural design.

Although most of the students had no carpentry experience, they were able to gain on-site training from Carpenters Union, one of the project’s sponsors. According to Derek Ouyang, outreach efforts such as this will help individuals think about improving their daily energy consumption.

I am so impressed with the job that Gregg and Karen did for my aunt's home. Not only did they take the time to explain thorougly what they were going to do, but they did EXACTLY as they promised.

We never expected to get the sales price for the house that we ended up getting. If you had seen my aunt's home before they started, you would know why. By the time the job was done, the house looked totally transformed.

Needless to say... I highly recommend their services!
