Another SEP member project is a Near Zero Energy Demonstration House in Citrus Heights CA.  Under the auspices of GreenEarthEquities Sacramento an “energy wise” renovation team replaced the roof, doing a complete attic seal including removing all the existing insulation and replacing it with R-60 cellulose.

The team also utilized spray foam under the house and installed a vapor barrier. All existing aluminum single pain windows and sliding glass doors were replaced with energy efficient dual pane. Solar was added to achieve a goal of 70% energy savings.
