Off-Grid Vacation Home In California’s Gold Country
While not completely net-zero or carbon-zero, as propane is used for heating and backup, the home does largely rely on a rooftop solar system comprised of 24 photovoltaic panels with a battery backup system. Propane is used to heat water and the home through a radiant floor system during the winter when the weather is cooler. A high-efficiency wood burning stove can also be used to provide additional heat.
