from the

folks at ABS.

Retrofitting homes

to modern standards

of comfort, efficiency,

and reduced emissions. 

We believe it is imperative to eliminate as rapidly as possible emissions of greenhouse gases into our planet's atmosphere. Over a third of those emissions come from our buildings. Our mission is to use our skills, experience, and organization to assist our North Bay neighbors in replacing their fossil fuel burning appliances with high efficiency electric appliances.

The common gas burning appliances in the typical order of quantity of greenhouse gas emissions are:

  • Furnaces

  • Water Heaters

  • Clothes Dryers

  • Ranges

  • Gas Fireplaces & Barbeques

There are efficient economical electric substitutes for all these appliances. The good news is there is little if any economic or performance penalties for going all electric.

As a company we have four related missions:

Insulation and the air tightness: We have over twenty years of experience enhancing the insulation and air tightness of existing structures. This increases comfort while reducing energy use by significantly slowing the escape of heated or cooled air through the building's thermal enclosure.

Solar & Storage: Whenever it is feasible we install solar generation and battery storage to capture and utilize the cleanest energy source of all. Often the electrical energy produced can totally offset the energy required for a building's functioning. This is so called "zero net energy" building results in PG&E bills of about $10 a month.


Vehicle Chargers: We also facilitate the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions from the transportation sector by installing electric vehicle chargers. - electric_car_PNG8.png

We have been receiving many inquiries about when and how the energy rebates called for in the Inflation Reduction Act will be made available to homeowners. Bloomberg Financial recently published an article that addresses these questions. You can read it here:
