Jackson Design and Remodeling Goes Green - Converts Design Center & Showroom to Solar Powered Energy
(San Diego, Calif. - March 30, 2015) - San Diego-based design build firm Jackson Design & Remodeling (JDR) today announced that the company has converted its headquarters, which houses its 7,000 square-foot design and remodeling showroom, from traditional electricity to solar powered energy.
In total, 176 solar panels were installed on the roof of the building, which will provide approximately 85 percent of the company's energy needs. The total project cost was in excess of $200,000, but the electricity savings over time will pay for the installation in five years and actually recoup money for the company after that. In addition to installing solar panels on the corporate office building, JDR also upgraded its heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) system to high efficiency.
For the past 25 years, JDR has committed to making green remodeling practices a priority. The company's design and production team members are Certified Green Professionals, who provide clients with sustainable design and environmentally friendly materials, based on their needs and lifestyles, when planning and executing a remodeling project.
"Converting our office building to solar powered energy has been a huge stride for our team in the practice of green remodeling," said Todd Jackson, founder and CEO of JDR. "As professional remodelers, we believe in setting the standard for utilizing green energy principles. By adopting these commitments for ourselves, we understand how these products and materials work and we gain firsthand experience dealing with the day-to-day updates and maintenance, allowing us to provide the best counsel and advice to our clients while in the planning and strategizing stage of the remodeling process."
As part of the company's commitment to green practices, JDR offers solar panel installation to clients across San Diego County. Implementing solar power increases a home's value and significantly reduces energy costs.
