Energy Conservation through off-grid geothermal / solar technologies for (future) Community Facilities

The Energized Research – Learning Institute ( launch on Wednesday, May 15, 2013 at Poplar Springs – The Inn Spa was attended by Ed and Tammy Moore, Holder Trumbo, Chester Stribling, Sheryl Wolfe, Brian Gorg, Warren Darrell, Birge Watkins and a host of local business representatives. ER-LI is beginning to work with Brookside homeowners on reducing their monthly utility bills and CO2 footprints.

If similar houses in the same neighborhood are placed on the market, the Greener / More Sustainable Home will appraise higher and sell faster.

A recent Broad Run example showed the same house being appraised for $400,000 and $465,000 (16.25% more) by two different appraisers within 15 days, the latter taking the time to evaluate HVAC equipment, grounds returned from lawn to nature, lower utility bills, and increased comfort levels in the home.

Stay tuned for amazing results as Brookside residents get involved, attend inexpensive, onsite classes and apply simple technologies developed since 2008.
