Green buildings are not just good for the environment— they are good for your wallet also.
Green building features are gradually becoming second nature for sustainably built home environments and infrastructures. Their technical nuances are so overwhelming it is assumed that the concept of ‘green building’ is exclusive to real estate builders and developers. Thus, sustainable features and relevance of the green building for end consumers (i.e., residents) are usually overlooked. As a practitioner of sustainable and green buildings, I believe that there are various ways in which residents of green building homes can obtain significant benefit.
