Global Living Systems Launches "G Home" Kickstarter Campaign in Recognition of Earth Hour

Pledges secured from campaign will fund public awareness, education and special events which showcase G Home's new living design for a clean energy future

LAS VEGAS, Nev. April 01, 2015


Global Living Systems' (GLS) flagship sustainable design project, "G Home," which is an affordable, high-performance, ecological demonstration home, launches their Kickstarter in celebration of Earth Hour. The crowdfunding campaign takes off after Earth Hour and will conclude on May 30th at 9:30 a.m. PST.

The first G Home demonstration in Las Vegas (GHLV) is currently under construction at 328 N. Lisbon St. Henderson, Nev., near Lake Las Vegas. The home is expected to be completed in the fall of 2015 and will feature prefabricated components, super-insulation and the latest renewable energy production and storage systems. Once completed, the home will be utilized as a venue for meetings, special events and public presentations showcasing the ecological design and philosophy of GLS' G Homes.

G Home's Kickstarter campaign hopes to raise $40,000 within the 60-day time period for the purpose of generating broader public awareness, education and holding on-site special events highlighting the principles and practices of G Homes.

G Home's are simple, elegant, energy-producing designs that follow 21 simple ecological principles and a design diagram developed by GLS; G Home incorporates both the modern needs of occupants and the environment.

"The building and development of G Home is perfectly aligned with Earth Hour's vision of protecting our planet and creating a sustainable world. The G Home represents an achievable, front-line tool that is committed to a campaign of spreading ecological awareness and combating climate change," says GLS Founder and G Home Designer, Aeron Tozier. "We already have a number of prospective clients who are interested in building G Homes of their own. However, the biggest impact will be generated through broader support of our communities who-in-turn, encourage our industries and developers to commit to uncompromising ecological quality and performance at a price we all can afford."

G Home Kickstarter will be providing rewards that include archival photographic artwork, commemorative 3D printed concept models and an invitation to the opening event with accommodations in Las Vegas.

Featured Product

TRA SNOW AND SUN - SOLAR TILE MOUNT

TRA SNOW AND SUN - SOLAR TILE MOUNT

You haven't installed a tile mount that is easier to install than the Solar Tile Mount manufactured by TRA Snow and Sun. Solar Tile Mount is used on all tile roof profiles: flat, mid, and high. It is made in the USA of aluminum alloy for strength and excellent corrosion resistance. Solar Tile Mount is built to allow more ease in installation with more rise from the tile surface to the rail for better air flow below panels. The adjustable base is longer than most allowing attachment 6" to the left or right to have the bracket in the base of the pan of the tile and still fasten to the rafter. Solar Tile Mount is adjustable for counter batten systems from ¾" to 3". The horizontal rail is directly above base fasteners giving greater uplift resistance than any other system. For superior waterproofing apply TRA Snow and Sun's butyl backed VersaFlash aluminum flashing. No tile flashing is needed on top of the tile for greater labor and material cost savings.
