Vermonters have the chance to see how their neighbors are cutting their energy bills through the power of the sun, wind and green building techniques on Saturday, Oct. 6, during the Northeast Sustainable Energy Associations (NESEA) 2007 Green Buildings Open House. Homes and businesses throughout Vermont will open their doors and welcome the public to tour, ask questions and discover way to save energy, money and protect the environment.
People looking for practical information and real-life examples of how to reduce their energy costs and live lightly on the planet will want to visit these sites, said Denis Poley, green building tour coordinator at NRG Systems in Hinesburg. NRG Systems will open its doors between 3 and 4:30 p.m. for guided tours of its gold LEED-certified building, which has been recognized nationally for its healthy and environmentally friendly design.
