Together, the solar hot-water panels and high-efficiency water heater cut fossil fuel use in each home, providing significant savings on monthly fuel bills. Each year Centex donates $35 from each home it builds and sells nationwide to The Nature Conservancy to help it save America’s endangered habitats. 3 million. Energy savings in Centex’s 21st Century Performance Home also derive from highly efficient windows, designed to prevent heat from radiating into the house during the summer, and a special type of roof sheathing that incorporates a layer of thin aluminum foil that blocks 97 percent of the sun’s heat during the summer, reducing attic temperatures by as much as 30˚F on the hottest days.
But should this fail, there is an efficient recycling system to ensure that some organism benefits. They are renewed constantly to ensure the continuation of life.

Many new office buildings, universities, schools, and government buildings are incorporating long lists of green building materials and ideas.
