SummaryShea Home builders were in the process of a new development when the western energy crisis hit California in 2000. In some cases, San Diego Gas and Electric utility bills nearly tripled in one month resulting in a very strong market for high efficiency homes. 306 single-family homes were built. All have solar hot water systems. Still at this point PV was not a standard feature in the development and was offered on only 100 residences.
