Help Us Transform Energy Usage In the Richmond Region

“As a conservation professional, energy efficiency is very important to me and I got an energy audit with Viridiant soon after moving. As a first time homebuyer, learning the ins and outs of our home’s energy consumption was daunting but Andrew really broke it down for us in a way that was understandable and engaging. The prioritized report provided afterwards was comprehensive but easy to navigate and we will definitely refer to it often. I found the whole process fascinating and am looking forward to making the recommended improvements to our home! “
