Free PG&E Webinar: Assembling the Zero Carbon Home
Event Description

Zero-carbon homes are on the fast track to mitigate climate change. Using less energy for space conditioning and hot water production throughout the year than conventional duel-fuel systems, zero-carbon homes are more thermally comfortable than traditional buildings.

The objective of this course is that at the conclusion, participants will be able to:

  • Provide examples of passive and active systems that comprise a zero-carbon home
  • Describe building science fundamentals that optimize a home's performance
  • Detail critical all-electric mechanical systems and end-use appliances that greatly improve a home's efficiency
  • Create an energy resilience strategy for a home with solar PV and battery storage
  • Name at least 2 or more financing mechanisms that support zero-carbon construction or retrofits
