  • We used to produce all of our own electricity via a roof mounted photovoltaic array. Now we are working on reducing demand in preparation for installing an array in Philly.

  • We strive to reduce water consumption and have set a goal of reducing water use by 10% by year end.

  • We also strive to conserve natural gas, which we use for heat and cooking.


  • We participate in the One-Bag-A-Week Challenge™ to reduce solid waste destined for the landfill and strive to consciously purchase products that have recyclable packaging and can be recycled. We work to deconstruct all items destined for the landfill identifying ways to recycle each part whether it is paper, carpet, or computer chips. GreenBeams™ has set a zero waste goal by year end 2016.
