Gov. Gavin Newsom recently announced plans to deploy 1,200 tiny homes to four cities throughout the state to help house the large homeless population, which numbered at least 170,000 last year according to federal data. The state will spend about $30 million to build the homes which will go to Los Angeles, San Diego, San Jose and Sacramento.
One of the housing companies involved in the effort is Foldum-NetZero Energy Systems, which says their new semi-permanent tiny homes are equipped with beds, a kitchenette and full bathroom and can provide much needed housing for the homeless with more amenities than a tent or pallet shelter.
The units, which cost from $25,000 to $65,000, are self-powered with renewable clean energy from solar panels and a battery storage system and can operate off the grid. The tiny homes can also easily fold-up for transport.
