“A Fresno County home builder has become a leader in meeting a new statewide standard calling for solar power to be installed on new homes, starting Jan. 1, 2020.
De Young Properties is building a 36-single-family energy efficient development at Shaw and Highland avenues in southeast Clovis. It is the largest development of its kind in the state and could serve as a model for how other builders meet the looming energy saving mandate.
Among the energy saving features of the home is the heat pump water heater. Instead of using gas to heat the water, the heat pump uses electricity. It pulls heat from the surrounding air and transfers it to water that’s stored in a tank. There is also roof tiles to reflect heat and sunlight away from the home and a high-efficiency air conditioning and heating system.”
