What We Offer - Green Building
LEED®: Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design gives building owners and operators the tools they need to have an immediate and measurable impact on their buildings' performance. Eastern Architectural Representatives offers consultation and products to achieve LEED certification.

Photovoltaics: Photovoltaics, or PV for short, is a solar power technology that uses solar cells or solar photovoltaic arrays to convert light from the sun directly into electricity. Eastern Architectural Representatives, through its strategic partners, offers analysis that will include a physical review of your site's suitability for a solar energy system, an analysis of your energy consumption, and a recommendation of the most appropriate solution for your facility. In order to promote the use of solar power, local, state, and federal government entities often provide valuable incentives and rebates that can reduce the cost of a solar electric system. The availability of these incentives is an important consideration in evaluating the economic attractiveness of a solar investment.
