I’ve been gone for awhile as we moved into a brand new green home in a town called Moraga, CA. It was fun to pick the green upgrades, adding lots of solar, extra insulation, all LED lights, EV charging and dual flush toilets… I’ve been obsessed with my solar meter, checking it several times a day. Seems my max production thus far was on June 5th when my 5.7kW system produced 43.2 kWh. My first energy bill showed better than net zero electric usage, actually going into the positive as I paid $0 for electricity. Lots of fun for me.
My solar obsession is a good lead in to today’s Regen360 podcast with Terri Wills. She’s the CEO of the World Green Building Council, which I founded back in 2002. The global organization now has more than 70 countries with national GBCs banding together into a “united nations” of GBCs.
In my conversation with Terri we talk about the work of individual countries, such as the USGBC with its LEED system and Australia with Greenstar, the business case for green buildings and dive into the hottest trend in sustainable building – health and wellness. It’s amazing to hear about the vision, growth and passion for transformation. We learn that Terri was inspired by nature in her youth and has manifested her passion into her work in bringing our world’s largest industry, one country at a time, to design, build and operate consistent with the laws of nature and to share global best practices.
