CLAM Blue2 Tour 1 - See the Guts: Friday & Saturday, April 16 & 17

5 1/2 light bulbs (550 watts) is what it takes to heat the new Blue2 house during the coldest day of the year.

CLAM's Blue2 is expected to be the first new certified Passive House in California, an affordable, energy efficient, low carbon house with superior health and comfort. Carbon reduction eases climate change and preserves habitat. Blue2 is now under construction. Come see and learn what makes a Passive House work so well.
