CHICAGO, GURNEE, HOFFMAN ESTATES, NAPERVILLE, TINLEY PARK, IL …
To help celebrate the 40th anniversary of Earth Day, DirectBuy of DuPage County hosted two Green Energy Seminars for its members. And while attendees learned how to run their homes more efficiently and take advantage of government appliance rebates, Club Owner Jeremy Vest felt a grander green gesture was in order. To that end, he donated $100 to the Arbor Day Foundation’s Replanting Our National Forests program.
In cooperation with the U.S. Forest Service and the National Association of State Foresters, the Arbor Day Foundation is planting new trees in U.S. forests damaged by natural and other catastrophes (e.g. California wildfires). For every $1 donated, one tree will be planted in these damaged forests. DirectBuy of DuPage County’s contribution represents 100 new trees to be planted in one of these damaged forests.
“We applaud our members’ efforts to educate themselves on how they can run their homes in a more energy-efficient manner and what better way to recognize greener living than planting a tree,” said Vest.
Build Energy Experts, LLC, the industry leading Building Energy Auditor, Energy Retrofit, LED Lighting, and Alternative Energy specialist for government, commercial, and residential applications, conducted the two Green Energy sessions. Topics covered included:
- Incentives (tax incentives, grants, Homestar)
- Energy Audits
- Weatherization (insulation; energy-efficient remodeling)
- Whole House Ventilation System
- LED Lighting
- Renewable Energy
- Solar Photovoltaic
- Domestic Hot Water Solar Systems
- Wind Energy
- Geo Thermal Heating and Cooling
“We pride ourselves on helping our members save money on their home improvement projects and home furnishings,” said Vest. “By offering seminars like this, we not only enhance the value of their membership, but give them the resources to reduce their carbon footprint.”
