ENERGY - Builders of A Better World
As defined by the Department of Energy Zero Energy Building is
“an energy-efficient building where, on a source energy basis, the actual annual delivered energy
is less than or equal to the on-site renewable exported energy.”
Focusing on energy-efficiency during the design phase is paramount in implementing cost effective measures such as renewable energy systems. Recognizing this, The BlackStar Companies, LLC (BSC) has aligned itself with a team of subject matter experts in the areas of Energy Efficiency, Renewable Energy, Design, Construction, Skills Training, and Finance to create The BlackStar Energy Group (BSEG). BSEG will offer our customers sound and cost effective Net Zero solutions that will assist them with ending their dependency on nonrenewable energy, lower the expense of operating their facilities, and reduce their energy consumption by up to 50 percent – as mandated by Executive Order 13693.
