When we talk about green buildings we refer to the application of techniques and principles for reducing the environmental footprint of ‘having’ and using a building. Constructing and maintaining a green building incorporates applying green principles at all stages; designing, building and using it.

Fossil fuels may be an inexpensive solution for power generation but they pollute the environment and they cannot last forever; that is why we are turning to alternative renewable energy sources to cover for our energy needs at all levels, residential, commercial or utility scale power applications.

Price hikes on fossil fuels such as oil have pushed homeowners into looking for alternative ways of heating their homes that are more efficient and result into savings. One of the options that is gaining popularity is the installation of wood pellet boilers.
