Here is part two of the Creative Fresno Living Urban lecture.
A Q&A session was held with the city sustainability person, and during it, the following was mentioned:
-Evaporative cooling is more efficient that A/C, but fell out of favor in the 70s.
-In the past few decades, Fresno has grown 8x…but the land area consumed has grown by 12x.
-A pool pump, set incorrectly, can add 50% to a home electricity bill.
After the brief session, the president of Granville homes spoke. While Granville is known for their suburban detached homes, an arm of the company called GV Urban is responsible for many of the new residential developments downtown. Without them, downtown Fresno would be as stagnant as ever.
