Ninety miles north of San Francisco, the Real Goods Trading Company constructed a cutting-edge solar living center using building materials, landscaping techniques, and futuristic renewable energy technologies. The center is a working demonstration site for renewable energy and earth-friendly building and landscaping concepts; A Place in the Sun is the exciting and fascinating story of how the people and ideas came together to bring the center from conception to a functioning, tangible reality. The result is an eclectic, visionary complex of buildings and landscaping that functions as a center for education, a retail operation, and an experimental demonstration framework for new technologies. The story of how it came to be is both hopeful and inspiring.
