Build Green To Save Green
By going green homeowners can save green.
That's one of the take away messages of a seminar that's designed to educate home builders about policies and programs they can use to help create a more sustainable community.
More and more homeowners want to move in to a space that is energy efficient and lessens their impact on the environment.
But homeowners don't always know where to begin, and that's where the Alachua County Growth Management office steps in.
The county acknowledges that energy saving measures can cost a little extra up front, but they can also meet a market demand that could help jump-start a slumping housing market.
Today the seminar discussed ways builders can design homes that save water, energy, use recyclable building materials and have a low impact on the environment.
