PowerSolutions strives to be as environmentally-conscious as possible, we are committed to “Green Building” Practices which expands and complements the classical building design by incorporating efficiently using energy, water, and other resources, reducing waste, pollution and environmental degradation. While new technologies are constantly being developed to complement current practices in creating greener structures, the mutual objective is that green buildings are designed to reduce the overall impact of the built environment on human health and the natural environment. As technology continues to evolve we stay on top of new processes, products and procedures.

Renewable Energy & Technologies

PowerSolutions is very supportive in using Renewable energy (sun, wind, water, or geothermal). This type of energy comes from resources which are continually replenished. It also can be derived from biomass — or plant matter — which is grown, harvested, and transferred into energy by one of a number of processes through Renewable technologies (Renewable energy technologies are clean sources of energy that have a much lower environmental impact than conventional energy technologies). Renewable technologies are designed to capture and store this energy. They include:

  • Photovoltaic solar panels convert sunlight directly into electricity.
  • Wind turbines capture wind to turn rotors, which turns a generator and creates electricity.
  • Transpired solar collectors use sunlight to preheat air for heating purposes.
  • Solar hot water heaters use the sun to heat water for domestic applications.
  • Small-scale hydroelectric power plants flow water over turbines, which turn a generator and create electricity.
  • Fuel cells combine hydrogen and oxygen to produce electricity and heat.
  • Ground source heat pumps transfer heat to the ground in summer and extract heat from the ground in winter.
  • Green power is electricity generated from renewable sources such as wind, geothermal, biomass, and landfill gas.

    Shifting to renewable energy can help us to meet the goals of reducing greenhouse gas. Investing in renewable energy can have significant dividends for our energy security.

What is LEED?

LEED is an internationally recognized green building certification system, providing third-party verification that a building or community was designed and built using strategies aimed at improving performance across all the metrics that matter most: energy savings, water efficiency, CO2 emissions reduction, improved indoor environmental quality, and stewardship of resources and sensitivity to their impacts.

About GBCI (The Green Building Certification Institute)

The Green Building Certification Institute (GBCI), established in January 2008, provides third-party project certification and professional credentials recognizing excellence in green building performance and practice. GBCI administers project certification for commercial and institutional buildings and tenant spaces under the U.S. Green Building Council’s Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED®) Green Building Rating Systems™ addressing new construction and ongoing operations. GBCI also manages the professional credentialing programs based upon the LEED Rating Systems including the LEED Green Associate and LEED AP credentials.
