Owner Peter Stone was born and raised in Hawaii and has a deep commitment to helping Hawaii reach the very ambitious goals set by the Hawaii Clean Energy Initiative. To get there, Peter believes it will take a monumental effort by everyone and he is passionate in doing his part to help the building industry go green by:
– Reducing the energy requirements and water consumption of the homes they build
– Using less toxic and more sustainable materials going into their homes
– Re-using existing materials and sourcing locally where possible
Peter comes from a broad business background and understands that in addition to a desire to build in a more “green” and sustainable manner, decisions made on a project must make economic sense. His many years running small businesses combined with over 5 years experience as a green building consultant and energy rater give him a unique perspective on the challenges builders in Hawaii face in obtaining these goals.
Peter is well versed in the nuances of the Energy Star New Homes program. As an accredited HERS rater and LEED-Homes Green Rater, Peter has inspected and conducted performance testing on over 250 homes.
Whether you are a homeowner looking for ways to make your upcoming project more “green” or a contractor desiring certification in the LEED-Homes or Energy Star New Homes programs, Pohaku Consulting will partner with you to meet your goals.
