Green Remodel Forum
January, 2013

This new year we have an early start. Just last week Green Remodel Forum partnered with SunShot (Department of Energy Sunshot Initiative Rooftop Solar Challenge) and other local non profit organizations to host a solar financing workshop for the East Bay homeowners in San Ramon, CA.

As advocate of green homes, we participate in green or community events. Often times, people ask us where to buy green products. We’ve recently started a Green Home Store section, accessible from the Shop tab, in our website. This is work in progress; we plan to add more products and features. If you know or have experience with good green products or materials, we like to hear from you, and we can add them to the Green Home Store.
