On Thursday, July 29, GREENER STOCK will be hosting Build Green-Save Green: An Introduction to Financial Incentives for Green Building and Remodeling.
Since opening in January 2010, Heather Curless, owner of GREENER STOCK, has encountered many home and business owners that are interested in building new or remodeling existing buildings in a more sustainable way. These customers understand that by making these types of alterations, they will instantly save money in utility and maintenance costs. However, they are not aware of financial incentives that help make these upgrades even more financially beneficial. “Many of the incentives can even be bundled so that there may be almost no out-of-pocket costs for the building owner,” says Curless of GREENER STOCK.
This information will be valuable for anyone related to the building industry including home and business owners, contractors, builders, and real estate agents.
The presenters are experts in their fields and are able to provide success stories for implementing the different incentives that are available.
