The Menlo Passive Project

Clarum Homes built the first passive home in San Mateo County & Menlo Park, California. It blends unsurpassed energy-efficient technology and sustainable building materials into a custom home that is gorgeously designed, healthy for occupants, and amazingly comfortable.

Passive homes improve air quality and save homeowners on their heating and cooling costs by primarily heating the home with solar and internal gains from electrical equipment and other objects. Energy consumption is reduced by 90% or more compared to that of conventional homes.
