Open House and EV Ride and Drive in Palo Alto

Sat, 07/09/2016 -
10:00am to 1:00pm

The event has 2 components:


1. Open House:  Sven Thesen will  open up his home and describe the adventure of building the first Passive House in Palo Alto. 

This Passive house, incorporates the best, cheapest, longest-lasting, safest, most aesthetically pleasing product and materials available while using 80% less energy than the typical CA Home.  The comfortable, beautiful home also well exceeds the State’s residential 2020 zero net energy standards.


2. EV Ride and Drive:  Come and ride – or even drive – an Electric Vehicle (EV) for yourself & get the real skinny from EV owners.

There will be a number of EVs present including, Nissan Leafs, Chevy Volts & Sparks, BMW I3s, Teslas,, etc. EVs are more fun to drive, cheaper on the wallet and better for the planet than gas cars. Be warned, once you try an EV, you may never want to drive a gas car again!
