What: Futuro owner, Jesse Ware, first got his taste for building energy-efficient homes from his father during the 1970s. Since then, Ware has received LEED AP accreditation from the U.S. Green Building Council and specializes in building residential homes and commercial projects focused on environmental sustainability. Futuro’s residential and solar division specializes in zero net homes, which are homes engineered to offset the amount of energy consumed through interior design, extensive insulation, and efficient mechanical systems. Grid-tied solar panels harness renewable energy to heat, cool and power the homes, while cellulose derived insulation maintains efficiency in both energy demands and energy costs.
