Buffalo, N.Y. (PRWEB) February 08, 2012
Western New York building contractors, spearheading the green homes development initiative, are set to speak at the 2012 New York Energy Star trade show on February 9th in Saratoga Springs, NY. President of Natale Builders, Angelo S. Natale, and head of Business Development, Larry LaDuca, will be presenting at the trade show, focusing on green and energy efficient home design. The speakers are also expected to discuss the Rivera Greens Housing Development in Clarence, NY, the first all green home development in New York State.
The New York Energy Star trade show focuses on the networking and educating of residential and home contractors on the latest in sustainable home, and energy efficient home building techniques. The two day conference will host numerous presentations by several notable speakers, and is funded by ACI (Affordable Comfort Inc.). ACI is a national nonprofit organization that is dedicated to education in green development, and residential building at affordable costs.
Speaking in conjunction with Anthony Aebi of Greenhill Contracting, and Pasquale Strocchia of Integral Building and Design, Inc, Mr. Natale and Mr. LaDuca will be discussing net-zero home building, and how it relates to the future of residential development. Natale Builders is currently in the midst of developing the first all green home development in New York State. “We are looking at green technology right now. We believe that we are the leader in efficient homes” says Mr. Natale.
A net-zero home design is a home that has zero (or close to zero) net energy consumption. Along with the conference’s theme of energy efficiency with regards to cost, net-zero homes utilize specialized building materials, geothermal techniques, and solar panels for the effect of little to no energy cost in monthly bills. "The net zero concept actually gives you a much more affordable home because you'll have no utility bills" remarks Mr. LaDuca, who will outline the numerous other benefits of net-zero homes including increased property values. Mr. LaDuca and Mr. Natale are also expected to discuss the lower cost of building green homes as well, which comes with federal tax incentives, and longer warranties.
The Rivera Greens Housing Development will consist of 35 sustainable green homes on Country Rd. in Clarence, NY. Located within walking distance of shopping outlets, and with an onsite, undisturbed, natural well, the development will have ranch and two story homes available, all with net-zero home design in mind.
