The FL GREEN TEAM is an energy conservation company dedicated to making homes and businesses more energy efficient thereby lowering energy consumption and reducing electric bills. In most cases we can cut electric bills 50% through energy efficiency measures such as upgrading air conditioning systems including ductwork sealing, solar water heating, insulation and window tinting. While helping homeowners and businesses become more energy efficient we in turn improve air quality making the environment more healthy and comfortable. We also install solar electric systems that can make your home consume zero energy from the electric company.
Energy conservation is by far the easiest way to reduce our dependence on fossil fuels. Every dollar spent on conservation is equal to spending $4.00 to generate electricity. We feel very strongly about “Conserve First” “Generate Second”.
Saving energy is more than an environmental cause. It’s a matter of national security. The less energy we use the less we are dependent on imported fossil fuels. We Americans use twice as much energy as European nations and three times as much energy as other developed countries.
We are members of the Florida Solar Industries Association, the Building Industry Association of Lee County, the Florida Green Building Coalition and the Florida Alliance for Renewable Energy.
