Under this program we have figured out a way to turn homes our communities into ecofriendly homes under our Eco Tech Initiative.
FAB is embarking on a revolutionary way to upgrade and modernize homes and make them more energy efficient. The benefit to this is to lower utility bills and living costs to increase the sustainability of property ownership in what is considered “blighted” areas.
Benefits to Go-Green Technology in Homes:
- A healthier home environment through improved indoor air quality.
- A more comfortable home due to fewer temperature variations.
- A return on investment through energy savings and lower maintenance costs.
- A positive environmental impact.
- A reduction in the use of natural resources
- A marketing resource to attract new homeowners to the area
- Increase Village tax rolls and ultimately eliminate its debt
Under our Revitalization and Modernization Initiative we have purchased a property on 14446 Park Ave, Dolton IL. FAB has a partnership with South Suburban College’s Building and Construction Department to rehab the above property and make it an Eco-Green structure. This will allow the initiative to bring this type of profound technology and innovation to the community.
- We are looking to gain 10 to 20 homes in order to redevelop these homes by putting the materials together and partnering with our electrical and plumbing unions and structure them by code and get them up to Lead Certification standard.
- The Go Green Project’s purpose is to turn these homes into low energy cost effective homes in low income communities.
- With this revolutionary program, we propose to be able to rehab these homes to be energy efficient reducing energy by up to (40%). Our model home at 14446 Park is a precursor for future homes
- Homes will have Lead Certification
Along with bringing the Eco- Green technology to our communities. The build out of this project will be a training ground for youth and the underemployed to learn:
This experience will prepare participants for gainful employment. As mentioned above we are offering this as a FREE program for the youth and members of this community.
