Green Projects and Programs in Orange County

Green Building

Green building combines energy and environmental integration. Green Building techniques include proper window orientation, the use of ceiling fans, window shading and light colored surfaces, energy efficient appliances and lighting, pollution reduction and solar water heating.

SUSTAINABLE BUILDING

Sustainable building is the practice of creating healthier and more resource-efficient models of construction, renovation, operation, maintenance, and demolition.
