Energy efficient homes becoming more affordable

With green homes using about 30 to 60 percent less energy, a local architect of LEED-certified homes is optimistic about the future demand.  LEED stands for Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design.  Virg Temme, an architect who specializes in energy-efficient homes, says if a house is designed properly the energy savings will offset the utility cost in the home.



Temme will be presenting at an upcoming Every Day is Earth Day event sponsored by the Door County Environmental Council later this month.
