Smarter Investments

How Can I Afford Net-Zero?

We will help you figure out which energy saving methods or renewable energy tech to install to give you the greatest amount of energy savings. Once you implement these energy upgrades, your energy footprint will be much smaller. Thus, an efficient building will need a much smaller sized, more affordable renewable energy system to reach net zero (or Cash Positive).

While the concept is simple, creating a design that includes the most cost-effective approaches and technologies for your space can be complex. When you approach energy efficiency correctly, there is no one recipe for all buildings, especially when dealing with existing buildings. We will help you find the solution that best fits your needs.

How Can I Extend the Life of My Building?

Our integrative design techniques take long term sustainability seriously.  We work to specify technologies that are durable, reliable and low maintenance.  At Inviro, we believe buildings should be built to last for a few generations, not just a few decades.  This means more than just choosing materials that last; planning for longevity means anticipating change and making smart choices when it comes to upkeep, upgrades and keeping up with the times.

Some ways to extend the life of your building are easy to afford, especially if you are planning a renovation, re-roof or other upgrades.

Incentives: How Can Spending Money Make Me Money?

Now is the time to take advantage of the generous tax advantages that are available. Some expire as soon as the end of 2013, while some will be renewed until 2016. The only way to turn your tax liability into income is through special tax rebate programs, which help you to invest in clean energy projects by allowing you to spend your hard earned tax money on investing in your future. We can help you find the technologies that are the best fit for tax credits and other initiatives.
