Meet the Smiths

A Family Seeking Sustainability

The Smith family dreaded opening this month’s utility bills. Between their rising electricity costs, increased water usage, and high gas charges, their current fragmented systems weren’t providing the efficiency or sustainability they wanted. There had to be a better way.

The Problem: Outdated Systems Create Inefficiencies
