Got green building questions?
Wouldn't it be nice if you could go to one place to find out more about:
• How to locate a green building professional
• Energy efficient appliances
• Bamboo flooring
• Solar water heaters
• Rebates and Incentives
You can. Build It Green is a professional non-profit membership organization whose mission is to promote healthy, energy and resource-efficient buildings in California. It's a great resource if you want to find out more about green building.
You can read about case studies, get more information about green building organizations and building codes, find Bay Area suppliers and service providers of green building products.
Build It Green also offers Green Home Tours, and holds workshops and events.
You can use their Resource Library (but be sure to check the public drop-in hours, or make an appointment).
And -- if you're a resident of one of the nine Bay Area counties, three county Santa Cruz and Monterey Bay Area, or Anaheim (due to funding) -- you can submit a green building question to the Ask an Expert Program. The service is free.
