Energy Efficiency Consulting Services Reduce Operational Energy Demand to Reduce Capital Expenditure

Engineered Garden

I started my sustainability project with a theme, "Grow What You Can Eat." It was my hope to use natural free resources water and solar energy to live a more sustainable lifestyle. Though the progress may be slow, I am proud to see the changes that my neighbors and other communities have made in realizing the value of this global issue to be solved by each one of us. As a specialist in the education and implementation of water conservation and rain water harvesting, we all should take small steps with end goal of someday achieving total sustainability.
