The August 13th 2000 Sunday edition of the New York Times real estate section ran this article written by Eleanor Charles concerning the estimated $825 million Fairfield County towns plan to spend on school construction in the next decade. In 1999 I started compiling this page to provide all parties involved with as much online information as possible on the topic of green and solar school design. Remy C.

Connecticut's Own Green Building Council

One of the missions of the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) is to spread the word on sustainable buildings, primarily through the dissemination of information. State-based council chapters are a good way to reach building owners, architects, and builders, and Connecticut has taken initial steps to establish a Connecticut Green Buildling Council, with help from Steven Winter Associates. Richard Barredo and Bryan Garcia of Connecticut Innovations and the Connecticut Clean Energy Fund; former Connecticut state representative Bob Maddox, from the now defunct Connecticut Energy Co-op; and Steven Winter (who was USGBC national chairman and is acting as USGBC Board Liaison) with SWA's John Amatruda have formed an Organization Committee to work with other Connecticut organizations to create a Connecticut-based affiliate. A kickoff meeting held  in October 2001 officially opened the chapter to architects, engineers, builders, and recommendations as to how states can best create chapters.
