Fassbender Sustainable Home
Tom and Julie Fassbender - 462 E 3rd St, Winona, MN 55987
Tom and Julie added a 4.4 kW solar electric system to their home just last year when they won the Made-in-Minnesota solar incentive and installed Silicon Energy solar PV panels made right here in the state.
You can also see their Nurio Energy Monitoring system that tracks not just their production of electricity but also their usage.
This family started with a smaller home which took less energy to heat, cool and light and have been steadily upgrading the insulation and windows over the years to make their home more energy efficient. They have also installed low-flow toilets and fixtures, use rain barrels, and compost their food waste.
