Energy Efficient Military Homes
Leads to Greener Environment
H alsey Terrace, Hickam, Pearl Harbor, Marine Corps Base Hawaii, Schofield, Radford Commu- nity, Aliamanu, Red Hill, Camp Stover, Manana and McGrew Point, and other military communities are setting the standard and are leading the way in providing military personnel and their families with beautiful, energy efficient homes and facilities. These military communities provide energy efficient living with a higher quality of life, while doing more than their share to “green” the environment.
By complying with EPA’s ENERGY STAR standards (www.energystar.gov), the military resident is assured of a “Green Home”- one that offers efficient electrical consumption for the service life of the efficient technologies employed in the home. This means a more manageable electric bill well into the next decade. For the developer, the maximization of Hawaiian Electric Company, Inc. (HECO) Energy$olutionsSM program rebates are assured, and everyone wins from the reduction of green house gas emissions on the environment.
With plans of utilizing ENERGY STAR appliances, implementing various energy efficient lighting and cooling systems, and of course, capturing Hawai’i’s best source of energy - solar, these military homes and facilities will leave a positive legacy on our environment, not to mention continuously saving energy and controlling electricity costs.
