Rising energy and water costs are forcing Americans to go green. According to this article from Reuters, over the last 3 years, more than 330,000 homes have been built in the United States with more and more “green” and environment-friendly features, like solar-power, environmentally sustainable energy, and other green technologies. And the best part is, such homes, once thought to be a luxury for the rich, seem more and more accessible to the average middle class American families. It is a country-wide trend and it is growing. And well, why not – it is cheap, it is environment-friendly, and it saves the big blue planet we call home.
