AIA New Orleans is proud to partner with Global Green USA and USGBC-Louisiana to feature our next installment in our 2012 Sustainability Series!
Sustainability Series presented by Global Green at the Global Green Resource Center on Thursday, June 14.
As we brace ourselves for another hot, humid summer in New Orleans, this month's installment will feature presentations and discussion with sustainable contractor/owner Ryan Fitzmorris of Retro-Fitz HomeWeatherization, energy consultant Louis Triay of Energy and Comfort Solutions and Solar Alternatives’ founder and VP, Mike Murphy.
We’ll discuss the best ways to prepare our homes and businesses for comfort in the summer months and beyond - the importance of an energy assessment and best practices in local weatherization services; products such as cellulose and spray foam insulation, radiant barrier and other new measures that can ensure comfort and save you hundreds of dollars a year on energy bills. We’ll feature information on the newest energy efficiency financing programs and incentives available - including loans, leasing and rebates that make this the most affordable time in Louisiana’s history to consider adding solar power to your energy plan – all with the sustainability of our structures, and our planet, in mind.
