The Batavia Environmental Commission Presents:
Eco-Home Open House
Wednesday, June 10, 2015
The Batavia Environmental Commission is inviting the community to an Eco-Home Open House to take a first-hand look at how a local couple made changes to their home and landscaping to make it more sustainable
This open house and presentation will show the many energy efficient upgrades Patrick and Rosie McVay have made to their 1955 ranch house since buying it in 2011. Some of the sustainable upgrades they made include installing new windows, insulating, upgrading mechanical equipment, installing PV solar panels, landscaping with fruit trees and vegetable garden, and installing a cistern collecting rainwater from the roof to water the garden. They will discuss the steps they took to make the necessary changes and the subsequent energy and money savings.
