Last week's radio show

Is not available 24/7 and we hope you tune in.   Enjoy:

Some background:

We had a very interesting discussion in this program with Shane Griffith from El Paso Housing Authority and Brian Gerritz who is the President of Pavilion Construction.

We learned how the Piasano Green Community came into being and where the financing came from in form of federal money as well as local funds . Brian Gerritz explained how Pavilion construction and the architectural firm , Work Shop 8, was rewarded the opportunity to design and build the project .

W learned that the term Net zero means that the complex produces as much energy as it consumes.  Shane Griffith pointed out that people living there start to have a passion for sustainability.

Interestingly, the materials used in the project can sustain a 30 year life span before needing to be repaired or replaced.
