Tomorrow’s Lunch and Learn Webinar will highlight technological advancements that have the potential to offer affordable net zero energy homes for farmworkers. Jason Resnick, Western Growers’ vice president and general counsel, will provide an overview of the current housing requirements for farmworkers under H-2A visas. He will also share the challenges and possible solutions associated with these requirements.
Dr. Frank Loge, the faculty lead on UC Davis’ entry to the U.S. Department of Energy’s Solar Decathlon 2015, will discuss his team’s affordable, net zero energy home design that could be replicated at low cost and offer a potential solution to meet current housing requirements. During the webinar, Dr. Loge will walk participants through the technologies and systems embedded in UC Davis’ fully operational solar power house that has the potential.
