Tells us about yourself.

I am a Home Performance Contractor with Gaia Sharbel Energy www.loweryourenergynow.com, an energy Star partner. In the past I used to motivate people to have their home energy deep retrofitted so they would enjoy the benefits of the energy savings, but nowadays things have changed. I now suggest for homes to be deep retrofitted as a way to make our homes more resilient to the extreme weather we are currently having. To help me educate my community on sustainable solutions I created a local NESEA Chapter (Northeastern Sustainable Energy Association -NESEA.org and https://www.facebook.com/neseahudsonvalley) Our meetings are all about preparing and organizing events to bring information of the benefits of GeoThermal, Solar, Wind, Airsealing, rain collection, passive solar design, energy audits, NYSERDA incentives, & much more In years past there used to be two separate teams, one solar passive, and the other super insulated homes without realizing that both solutions works best together

Introduction

After so many years of working as a contractor I finally decided to mix contracting with science so my work would make a difference by reducing the energy wasted in a business or home, including sustainable solutions, like solar
