Our primary speaker is Bruce Bennett, a Principal at GDS Associates with nearly 20 years’ experience in the residential building construction industry. Bruce’s presentation will cover foundational principles of building science and their application within the 2009 International Energy Conservation Code (IECC), followed by an in-depth discussion of the NH Saves ENERGY STAR® Homes Program. The deep dive into the program will include an examination of the energy impacts and non-energy benefits of building to ENERGY STAR® standards, as well as the overview of the rating process and 2019 incentive levels.
Are you interested in learning about the cost effectiveness of adding solar to your project? Did you think it would be too expensive? What type of return might you expect? In the afternoon session, Jeff Cantara, a NABCEP Certified Solar PV Designer with ReVision Energy will share his experience and insights on how to navigate these questions while committing to a more sustainable design. Jeff will address questions ranging from policy, to design, to financial considerations, and everything in between in a casual manner that encourages participation from the audience.
