Green DC…love the idea! November 30, 2006

DC may require developers to meet US Green Building Council standards for government and private development (see article). Considering that buildings use 2/3 of electricity, about 1/3 of total energy, as well as a considerable amount of water resources, this would be a great way to reduce energy consumption and our footprint on the planet, not to mention the health benefits to the residents.

I’ll keep my fingers crossed until the bill gets voted on in a couple of weeks.
