“What is your Green Equity?” is a phrase intended to make residents think about the steps they are taking towards ‘Greener’ living. The Green movement spans from eating healthier foods to driving fuel efficient vehicles. An important step in going green at home is increasing energy efficiency.
Energy efficiency is simply the process of doing more with less. The goal is to accomplish the same tasks and functions as before while using less energy. The Town of Davie promotes environmentally responsible practices aimed at reducing energy consumption while enhancing the quality of life for current and future residents.
