43. Saul and Jessie Davidson. We are strong believers in renewable energy and minimizing our use of fossil fuels. We regularly recycle every material we can. We own a hybrid vehicle and enjoy seeing fewer stops at the gas station. We recently added a 4.8kw photovoltaic solar panel array to the roof of our house and already we’re seeing it pay off. We hope to expand the system in the future and also add a solar hot water system to eliminate the need for propane hot water in our house. Being a member of the Green Alliance is exciting and shows us more and more opportunities to take advantage of in committing ourselves to living better and taking care of the environment.

46. Nils Bockmann. Nils interest in environmental affairs began in the mid 1960’s. Growing up in South Yarmouth, MA on Cape Cod, Nils observed the effects of unregulated environmental protection and felt compelled to take action. When he turned twenty-two, he became a Massachusetts Sales Associate for a California company that sold only biodegradable cleaning products. In 1978, Nils worked for the Congress of Claremont (NH) Senior Citizens and assisted the development of Senior Congress Park, an 82-apartment HUD Section 202 senior housing project that included 18 acres of green space and solar panels to generate hot water. At 46, while taking classes at the Cape Cod Community Center, Nils served as an Elected Student Trustee, to ensure that the leadership was dedicated to environmental technology. His contributions supported the continued sustainable development at the CCCC.
Nils and his wife Christine, left education in 2008 and spent two years working as on-site management of independent senior living communities in coastal Maine and eastern New Hampshire. While working out of their home base in Kittery, Nils was introduced to Sarah Brown and became peripherally involved with the good works of the Green Alliance. Nils became a Sustaining Member of the Green Alliance in June 2012, while pursuing his interest in all things 'green' as an Independent Associate of Viridian.

62. Marc Batchelder. Marc and Cheryl constructed their L.E.E.D. platinum house in Portsmouth with the help of many Green Alliance businesses including Little Green Homes, SEA Solar Store, Minute Men Painters, and Cornerstone Tree Care in the winter of 2008-09. We continue to use GA businesses as much as we can in order to support companies that share the same awareness for environmental issues as we do. You can usually find us with our two dogs outside every chance we get or having a pint of Cheryl's homebrew craft beer.

67. Jan & David Heirtzler. Jan and David Heirtzler live in Durham, NH, with their three children, Stephen, Sophia, and Susan; allowing David to walk to work at UNH, and Jan to walk or bike everywhere in town (the family's car is used almost exclusively for out-of-town trips). Reduced consumption is one of the core principles of Jan's home business making baby carriers: buying a single cloth carrier means that a whole host of baby paraphernalia becomes unnecessary. This proved helpful when their oldest child was born in 2000 -- a convertible car seat, diaper service, clothes, and a sling were really all that they needed. Sleeping Baby Productions LLC (http://sleepingbaby.net) has grown by leaps and bounds, helping other new families live simply and keep their babies close. The family's Green Alliance membership has paid for itself many times over, between discounts on bio-fuel heating oil and at local restaurants, and Jan hopes to use it in the near future to improve their home's energy efficiency. "Committing to a sustaining membership is an excellent investment -- I know we'll get much more out of it than we put in, and I truly appreciate the opportunities that it represents in our community."
