It is with great pleasure we announce the participation of the Florida Solar Energy Center in the Green Builder VISION House Orlando project. Led by Senior Research Engineer Eric Martin, FSEC will provide our team with support in the design, equipment selection, installation inspection, and ongoing performance monitoring of VISION House Orlando's HVAC system. And on behalf of the U.S. Department of Energy's Building America program, Eric will also lead an effort to evaluate the overall level of green incorporated into VISION House Orlando. The criteria by which Eric's assessment will be performed will be based on the Florida Green Building Coalition's Green Standards. And as a reminder, with the assistance of Green Builder Media, VISION House Orlando will also be evaluated using the NAHB Model Green Home Building Guidelines.
FSEC was created by the Florida Legislature in 1975 to serve as Florida's energy research institute. FSEC's main responsibilities are to conduct research, test and certify solar systems, and develop education programs. FSEC's mission is to research and develop energy technologies that enhance Florida's and the nation's economy and environment, and to educate the public, students, and practitioners on the results of FSEC's research.
