  • Real World Money Savings From Reduced Energy Use Through Green Efficient Sustainable Home Design

    Posted on July 21st, 2010 don No comments

    Perhaps the most tangible way to convey the value of green home design is in the measurable savings on the annual utility bills. The most recent home I constructed is a good example. A photo gallery is below.

    Through a combination of ingenious design, energy conservation, and efficient energy production, the heating and cooling costs are projected to be less than $150 per year in a region where temperatures can go from -30F to 100F from one season to the next.

    If you’re a tree hugger like me, the emissions report demonstrates that paying attention to energy conservation and efficient production can dramatically reduce emissions.

    See the following reports for a detailed analysis from an independent peer reviewed energy and environmental rating company.
