Since her home’s inception in 2004, California homeowner and landlord, Judy Fusco, has nurtured a space for transformation, first by housing her property with three young entrepreneurs who launched the world’s most famous social network, Facebook. Now, she continues this tradition herself by making the switch to solar power for the property this past week.
Where other landlords might have been wary to accommodate a budding technological experiment and party home, Judy Fusco believed in the innovative spirit of the young entrepreneurs and good karma of her recently built home. During the short seven months in which Mark Zuckerberg, Dustin Moskovitz and Sean Parker rented Judy Fusco’s home, they housed six servers and scaled the now social media platform from 200,000 members to 2.5 million members.
Fourteen years later, the Asian-American homeowner has carried the entrepreneurial and innovative spirit on, by installing solar power on her famous property through Bright Planet Consulting, a San Francisco Bay Area solar installation company.
“Solar energy is important to me because I know I will save money in the long run plus save the environment and leave the next generation with a beautiful planet,” Fusco said. “With my background in science, I love the innovative idea [of solar power] for the same reasons I chose the Facebook founders as my first tenants for my home over others — because I love the spirit and adventure of new ideas. Solar energy is the newest revolution.”
