CCSE GetUP House

For the next few months the GetUP Program, which trains Home Performance workers in conjunction with EnergyUPGRADE California, will be showing their Showcase Home at 590 Fig Ave. in Chula Vista. The Grand Opening and Ribbon Cutting is January 24th, 2012, from 1-2pm.

Thanks to the California Center for Sustainable Energy and the City of Chula Vista, which offers matching funds to the $4000/home EnergyUPGRADE program, a group of students (including me) got the opportunity to fully retrofit an existing home for energy efficiency and renewable energy ( <--- see pictures <--- ).

Also, thanks to Dan Ignosci, Home Performance Advisor with Comfort Advisors Heating and Air Conditioning, we have nice videos of the class at work (see below) with our instructors:
Dan Perunko, Judy Rachel, Rick Powell, and Scott Nyborg, and contractor Jesse Fulton.

The house will be open for tours over the next three months if you wish to see how an energy upgrade works.
