California-based construction company Ruiz Brothers Construction has completed a major energy-efficient home renovation project for Gold Star Manor, an affordable senior housing complex manager.

The renovation project included installing solar panels for electricity, solar water-heated systems for heating and hot water, new appliances and more.

The infusion transformed the retirement community for Gold Star mothers and senior veterans into a state of the art and environmentally friendly space.

With a total investment of $56 million over three years, Gold Star Manor's residences were renovated, adding more safety, security and energy conservation features.
