Habitat for Humanity of Montgomery County (HFH-MC) works with individuals, institutions, businesses, and the Habitat families themselves to build simple, decent, energy efficient, affordable housing for those living in substandard conditions in the community. In April 2007 HFH-MC began its Green Initiative which created affordable homeownership opportunities for low-income families, while building in an environmentally-sustainable way. This Green Initiative has since spread to all parts of HFH-MC including the offices where the organization recieves all of their electricity through wind power. HFH-MC understands the importance of green power and that it is another aspect in our initiative to become a green organization. “We are excited to be joining the green power movement. It is an important part of our green initiative and we look forward to learning more about green power and all of its benefits” said John Paukstis, HFH-MC Executive Director.
