Casa Aguila will arguably be the most advanced home ever built in San Diego County, looking to achieve many firsts for our region. It will be San Diego's first Certified Passive House, seek the County's first onsite wastewater treatment permit, seek the County's first permit to utilize all collected rainwater for all indoor water use, and strive for eventual grid-disconnection through utilization of battery power, Solar PV, and a 45-foot wind turbine (the blades alone are 17 feet tall!).

The project is located in Ramona, CA and is named for the Golden Eagles which frequently fly over the property.

BioPCM: Live Installation & Presentation

Alliance Green Builders and Sustainability Matters are hosting an event that is a rare opportunity to see BioPCM (Phase Change Material) being installed in the wall & roof assemblies of Casa Aguila. BioPCM is produced by Phase Change Energy Solutions, and Sustainability Matters is the San Diego Distributor of the Material.  Both companies are Project Partners for Casa Aguila.

Please see our previous post on BioPCM to learn more about this remarkable way to dramatically reduce heating and cooling loads in buildings.
