COMMUNITY

Many people believe that Green homes are a luxury rather than a necessity.  We believe that everyone who wants a Green home should have one and that by pooling community resources, this can be a reality.

Goals

We are building a model Green home  using Green vendors, subcontractors, suppliers, skilled immigrant labor, and volunteers, including youth and veterans.  

  • LEED Standards 
  • Net Zero Energy Goal
  • Minimal Carbon Footprint
  • Cost Less Than $100 sf
  • Protecting The Environment
  • Mini Split Heat Pump
  • Insulated Concrete Forms
  • Fire, Tornado and Hurricane Proof

Montgomery County Executive Ike Leggett has made sure that green initiatives are available for the entire county by working with energy suppliers, companies and the community. http://montgomerycountymd.mygreenmontgomery.org/

 

“As a State, we must move forward on a smart, sustainable path,” said Governor O’Malley. “Building upon our recent successes, we need to create a foundation for both our future and our children’s future.  We have to make tough decisions, governing through green initiatives and living our own lives as examples.”
