Green Home Industry Still Growing despite Construction Malaise
With energy costs only rising and homeowners income falling, more than a few people are investigating energy efficient or “green home” technology. Almost every neighborhood has homes with solar panels on them and the growth of geothermal heating systems is one of the bright spots in the construction and service industry.
Green homes refers to homes that are water and energy efficient, generate less green house gases, and cause less degradation to the environment. In San Diego county, the population is expected to grow substantial in the next 10 years which will put tremendous pressure on the local ecology. The use of electric cars and by using inhome electric power generation, San Diegans could save on oil and gas consumption, air pollution, and water pollution.
One Carlsbad resident has installed solar power collectors and system at his home. The home has some construction elements that allow it to retain heat and be heat efficient, to allow him to pay little or no electrical bills to pay to San Diego Gas & Electric.
