Eric Webb, owner of Webb Construction in Ramona, breaks ground on his first Zero Net Energy (ZNE) house, and what he says is the first ZNE house in Ramona. The new home is expected to produce as much energy from on-site renewable sources as it consumes to move toward a goal of total energy independence. Just under 2,000 square feet, the house will have four bedrooms and 2-1/2 bathrooms, and is being built on Indian Oaks Road off State Route 78. The house that once stood on the property burned in the 2007 wildfire, said Webb.
