Sustainable Energy Association Honors Solar Homes and Green Buildings
Environment

BUFFALO, NY-- The Western New York Sustainable Energy Association will honor three buildings for outstanding leadership in WNY for the use of energy-efficient building methods.

Daemen College is being honored for achieving LEED Gold Certification for its new Research & Information Center at 4380 Main Street. Daemen is being commended for creating an energy-efficient building that incorporates day lighting and many other sustainable features.

By rehabiliating existing buildings instead of demolishing them, the energy previously expended to build them, known as "embodied energy" is saved and further enhanced by incorporating renewable energy.

Aaron Bartley of PUSH (People United for Sustainable Housing) is being honored for converting an older house at 10 Winter Street in Buffalo to a NET-ZERO energy home.

The third building receiving honors is 95 Perry Street. The property is a good example of "embodied energy" by using energy-efficient methods and technologies to convert 18,000 s/f into office buildings.

Kevin Connors of ECO_LOGIC studio is giving a workshop on "How to Make Your Home Energy Efficient" at PUSH Headquarters at 271 Grant Street on Saturday, October 2 at 12 noon.
