On Saturday, April 28th, New Avenue and the Mayor of Palo Alto, Yiaway Yeh, cut the ribbon for the new Eco House exhibit in Palo Alto’s beautiful Rinconda Park. BLANCO is proud to be an Eco House sponsor and contributed the kitchen sink.
This net-zero energy home is off the grid, consumes $1 dollar per day in solar energy, is built with sustainable materials and fits in your backyard. The city will be hosting EcoHome tours and events throughout the year. Some of the cool sustainable items you can view at the EcoHome include recycled glass countertops, permeable paving, blue-jean insulation and clover-leaf solar electric (PV) panels.
The address is 1120 Hopkins Ave., Palo Alto, CA, 94301. The home in located next to The Girl Scout House, Children’s Library, The Lucie Stern Community Center and the Children’s Museum.
