Renewable Energy (Site Generation)

Reducing utility bills with 'green' energy generation technologies is certainly appealing.  This is a goal most share.  Higher purchase/ installation costs associated with 'green' energy technologies such as Solar PV, Solar Thermal, Geothermal, and Wind Turbines, however, makes these forms of energy generation "better sipped, than guzzled".

Leveraging lower cost materials that conserve energy, like insulation, to reduce the amount of renewable energy generation needed makes a lot of sense.  A "once and done" strategy to optimize the building components from the start places proper emphasis on permanent materials and assemblies, which are unlikely to be renovated for forty years or more.
