Who We Are

I'm Casey Colando and I've spent my whole life fascinated with technology. While I have explored, experimented, imageand innovated many things, my goal is to earn a living by helping you and the world. That's right, I want to help you! I want to save you money on heating and cooling costs by optimizing your fuel efficiency and showing you how to "live green." We can all reduce our negative impact on Mother Earth by incorporating passive solar design, solar panels, new and innovative building materials, and efficient insulation (among many, many other things) into our homes.

You may read in magazines or newspaper articles about people living "off the grid," or without power supplied by an electric company, and thought that was really interesting but not practical for the rest of us. But whether or not we are all living off the power grid, we can all make changes to both our habits and our houses to reduce our dependence on Giant Electric Co (and to reduce your monthly electric bill!).

How do I fit into this picture? I have spent years studying hands-on the intricacies of plumbing, heating, ventilation, cooling, electricity, wiring, and also the internal combustion engine. I am a master electrician, mechanic, plumber, and am certified HV/AC technician. I have also studied alternative energy at SUNY Canton, and am pursuing Electronic Engineering at SUNY New Paltz. My background is as varied as my interests are, but my passion has always been the cutting edge of science and technology.

To this end, I have focused my skill and experience. You don't have to be a hippie to help save the planet (though it doesn't hurt), but you do have to be willing to save some money!
