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.

Successful BioPCM workshop last week

Here is a picture from the workshop at Casa Aguila last week with our friends at Sustainability Matters and Phase Change Energy Solutions. The workshop was held to discuss the use of bioPCM in the project (you can see some installed in the roof assembly here, the white material) which has the thermal mass of 12 inches of concrete but is flexible and lightweight. The bioPCM will dramatically reduce requirements for heating/cooling and make for a much more comfortable home.
