LEED & Sustainability

Evergreen Power Systems is a member of the U.S. Green Building Council. Our LEED AP staff reviews the cost impacts to obtain various LEED credits. We utilize Green Building Studio, Revit, Ecotect, and ComCheck modeling and certification software. Our staff also works closely with utilities to maximize your potential energy conservation grant. We present the initial cost impact for various electrical conservation methods and an approximate rate of return in energy savings. We recommend when to utilize a newer technology or stick with older proven methods.
