Sponsor Highlight of the Day: BUFFALO ENERGY

We wanted to take a second to say THANK YOU to our sponsors.

Today we are featuring BUFFALO ENERGY. Without their support, Bernice Radle (co – chair of 2012 tour) would not be able to dedicate so much time towards this event. Buffalo Energy is a leader in the energy efficiency world and assists in making new and existing buildings more efficient through design, consulting and access to incentives.

Whether a retrofit, gut-rehab or ground-up new construction project, we help owners of residential and commercial buildings create energy efficient, comfortable, and durable structures.

We offer a common-sense approach to all of our projects. Our goal is to ensure that retrofit work is cost-effective, good for the building, and maximizes energy savings.

WNYSEA and GreenHomeNYC Presents: Green Building 101 

The experts from NYC and Buffalo are coming together for one night only to give you the best, most effective tips to green your building.

Come to listen, learn and be inspired!

Speakers: Shai Lauros, GreenHomeNYC, Fred Fellendorf and Bernice Radle, Buffalo Energy

Details: Monday, June 18th // 7pm // Free // Hallwalls // 341 Delaware Ave // FB event

Are you a homeowner, commercial property owner or property manager concerned with increasing energy costs?

Are you a contractor, architect, interior designer or real estate broker whose clients have asked about green buildings?

Do you plan to renovate, buy or develop a building?

If you answered YES, we have the experts here to help you!
GreenHomeNYC pairs with WNYSEA to curate the top tips for greening buildings by way of green materials, waste prevention and reduction, and energy efficiency.  Take a tour around what the experts in the field have to say to design, construct, maintain and enjoy an energy efficiency building with healthy indoor environmental quality.  This forum is a spinoff of an earlier forum that took place in New York City in May, organized by GreenHomeNYC and hosted by Trespa, wherein an audience of tenants, homeowners and building professionals gathered to hear how to reduce energy and water use; improve occupant health, safety and comfort with non-toxic, reusable and recycled building materials; and prevent waste and pollution.
Join us in Buffalo for a Green Building 101 on June 18th where we review the same, but with particular attention to those issues facing Buffalo’s building stock.  There’ll be something here for everyone – we’ll present insider tips applicable to novices and experts alike.  To start things off, we’ll screen the videos produced from the NYC forum that discuss why we’re embarking on our Green Buildings, Green Cities campaign, and take questions from the audience on these issues.  Following this, our Buffalo experts will take the stage to discuss their top tips for greening the City’s buildings.
