1. Install CFL light bulbs.

Green Tip: Energy Saving Facts and Myths

Thursday, November 7th, 2013 at 3:47pm. 554 Views, 0 Comments.

 



Quick – what's the most effective way for you to save energy?

If you're like many Americans, you'd say turn out the lights or turn up the AC's thermostat. And, like many Americans, you'd miss the mark.

Turns out, when figuring what we can do to go green, most of us overstate. We think about curtailment – unplugging appliances, driving less, turning off lights – when improving the efficiency of our cars, appliances and home would take the biggest chunk out of our energy footprint.

We’re “breaking ground” with the construction of a “green,” single-family residence — one which will earn the coveted certification of LEED Platinum, Net Zero. Located on the inland side of the Village of Corona Del Mar, the house will be energy-efficient, equipped with solar panels producing more electricity than you use. With completion slated for mid-2014, this house offers four bedrooms, four bathrooms, an office, and a state-of-the-art remote control lighting system. This luxurious, green lifestyle home will set a new standard of living in The Village.
