About Us – 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.
Reed Wilson – President
Reed Wilson is founder and president of the FL GREEN TEAM, and has been involved in energy conservation his entire business life. In 1979, after the Three Mile Island nuclear accident, Reed became interested in alternative energy sources, and he decided to devote his career to promoting energy efficiency. In the early 1980’s, he moved from Ohio to the Sunshine State to pursue his career in solar energy and energy conservation.
After working in the solar industry for a few years Reed got his solar contractor’s license and went into business for himself. He built one of the largest solar energy companies in the nation which he eventually sold to his employees. In 2001, Reed started Comfort Temp Air Conditioning which today does business as the FL Green Team, incorporating the company’s green approach to home comfort systems. In addition to being a solar contractor, Reed is a State Certified Energy Rater and a State Certified Pool Contractor. He is also certified by the National Comfort Institute as an “Air Conditioning Balancing and Diagnostic Technician”.
