Why GREEN?

  • Economic - energy, water, and other efficiencies don't necessarily cost more, and yet, most pay for themselves within a few years and offer significant savings in long-term operating costs. In addition, efficiencies in construction can actually reduce building costs, and incentives can often provide even more savings. (PG&E and Sonoma Clean Power are developing incentives for homeowners rebuilding after the fire, and will be sharing them at the EXPO.)

  • Health - homes designed to provide good indoor air quality and non-toxic materials are healthier for people and other living things.

  • Resiliency - making sustainable and renewable choices, such as micro-grids, batteries, water reuse systems, and more, make neighborhoods and communitiies more likely to withstand fires, earthquakes and other potential threats with less disruption and faster recovery.

  • Environment - making sustainable choices is good for the planet.
