It’s been an exciting and industrious week in Alamo City! Earlier this week, more than 200 Constellation Energy employees attending our annual sales meeting in San Antonio eagerly demonstrated their affinity for teamwork, and community and environmental sustainability by constructing 11 energy efficient homes with Habitat for Humanity of San Antonio as part of the “1.11.11 Build.”
The energy efficient materials that were incorporated in the construction of the homes included:
As the KENS5 evening news reported, we worked alongside families who will eventually call the Habitat houses “home.” Watch a short video of the construction site below.
The energy savings that correlate with energy efficient homes help families lower their bills, providing an opportunity to focus on costs related to education and health care, which are critical components in building strong families and successful communities.
The project was a natural fit given not only our national relationship with the organization, but also the San Antonio chapter’s rating by the San Antonio Business Journal as the 5th largest San Antonio Green Residential Builder in 2010. The chapter was also the only nonprofit on the Business Journal’s list.
In addition to the San Antonio chapter, our six regional partnerships support more than 140 energy efficient Habitat homes to create critical energy savings and affordability for limited income families. Specifically, we provide $5,000 per home for energy efficiency measures and LEED upgrades.
Stay tuned for more home energy efficiency news. We have more exciting developments to come in other parts of the U.S.!
