350ppm

350 parts per million.  that’s the “safe” level of CO2 in our atmosphere – “safe” as in the preservation of earth as we know it.  currently, the CO2 level is 392ppm.  guess what?! mankind is doing an excellent job of driving that number higher.

how are we doing this?, you might ask.  well, mostly by using fossil fuels.  through the use of on-site renewable energy/solar hot water and electric, 363HOUSE is projected to reduce its usage of off-site energy (generated by burning fossil fuel) by 90% when compared to a similar-sized “typical” house.  our savings could be more pending conservation efforts by its occupants.  yeah, its a small step in the enormous fight to reduce CO2 emissions, but its a necessary step that all of us need to embrace.
