Owners aim to make more electricity than they take
A cloudy day greeted the groundbreaking of Mark and Kathryn Hansons' new Roseville home on Tuesday, June 16, and it's no stretch of the imagination that the two are hoping for sunnier days ahead.
The Hansons' house will be powered and heated by sunshine, so much so that Mark said the home should be "net-zero," generating more electricity via solar panels than it uses.
The Hansons are putting a twist on the typical net-zero story as well, with plans to charge their electric cars exclusively using the home's electricity.
Motorists, plan ahead for the evening of the Rose Parade. Certain roads along the parade route will be closed on June 29 beginning at 5 p.m. and parade planners are encouraging motorists to take alternate routes to avoid congestion.
