Longtime Menlo Park resident, Margo McAuliffe, who recently turned 80 hasn’t slowed down her efforts to model eco-living. Margo was an early adopter of home solar and electric vehicles. Her eco-home includes vegetable gardens that thrive on recycled water from laundry and showers.
Margo has installed skylights to bring in natural light, insulated her attic and added an attic fan, which keeps the house cooler in summer, she has LED bulbs throughout, turns down the heat in winter and, hangs clothes to dry year-round. She is a model of eco-living.
