While it might make sense to get a good environmental start on Mars, builders and construction companies and property owners working on projects much closer to home have more earthbound matters to consider.
LOS ANGELES (PRWEB) December 02, 2019
A November 7 article on Yahoo News details private space exploration firm SpaceX’s plans to put a sustainable city on Mars. The extremely ambitious plans could take as many as 1000 launches of the rocket ship it has named Starship, and over 20 years to fully complete. The goal touted by the often controversial SpaceX and Tesla CEO Elon Musk is to begin launches as early as 2024. Alliance Energy Partners says that, while it might make sense to get a good environmental start on Mars, builders and construction companies and property owners working on projects much closer to home have more earthbound matters to consider.
Alliance Energy Partners notes that its chief purpose is to help companies ensure they either qualify for, or are compliant with, various government mandates and private programs, many of which offer monetary incentives. Chief among these programs are the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) initiative and the California Title 24 Building Energy Efficiency Standards. The firm adds that the former is often incentivized by local governments while the latter is mandatory under state law. In either case, the firm says that it can run energy models and offer expert advice to ensure that all standards are being met, potentially improving a company’s public perception while also remaining in good standing with the relevant authorities.
For impending development projects, the firm says that there are quite a few factors to consider when building a sustainable project, including the building’s location and layout, its expected appliances and equipment, and its power supply and usage. The good news, the firm says, is that construction companies or property owners do not have to make these engineering decisions in a vacuum, as the green consulting company has helped many other companies determine how to best incorporate their resources into building projects.
Alliance Energy Partners says that property owners may be discouraged from meeting sustainability-driven goals due to what often tends to be higher upfront costs; however, in many cases, companies that build with green engineering principles typically save significantly more over the long term because of lower operating costs. As such, the firm points out that green engineering is not the responsible thing or a matter of legal compliance, oftentimes it proves to be the more economical solution especially with the help of government tax breaks. Moreover, the firm says that an increasing number of consumers prefer businesses that commit to sustainable practices.
