Zero Energy Home

Zero Energy Home

We are proud of our client De Young Properties! De Young is building California’s largest grid-connected Zero Energy Home Community in Clovis called EnVision.  The project is scheduled to have 36 homes across 3,300 acres that produce as much energy as they use, ZNE (Zero Net Energy).  This will be the first master-planned community in Central California to be Zero Energy and still connected to the grid. DuctTesters is honored to be a part of this project helping De Young Properties with their energy consulting and verification needs.

Here are some photos from DeYoung Properties EnVision Launch Event.
