Garfield Clean Energy commercial case studies
Garfield Clean Energy case studies are two- to four-page stories about what regular people are doing to trim energy use and save money. While some techniques for saving energy are common and straightforward, others certainly are not. In these, you can read about everything from insulation and air-sealing to things such as white roofs and bounced light. The ways you can save energy in your home or business are almost limitless.
