Access Green, LLC is an Energy Conservation firm founded in 2008. We are headquartered in the Eckington neighborhood of Northeast Washington, DC.
I started working at a utility company that outsourced contractors to do green energy installations in offices and residencies. Pretty standard stuff. However, one thing that many customers complained about was having a contractor come to their property and state that they needed a completely new system installed. This usually came with an overinflated price tag attached and no explanation as to why this was necessary. Understandably, this left a lot of customers frustrated and unhappy with services.
Education doesn’t start and end with buyers, either. Access Green is as dedicated to its work in local job training as it is in any other area. The economy is just as important in society’s ability to function as the environment. Washington DC is simultaneously one of the wealthiest cities in the country, and home to one of the highest unemployment rates in the eastern wards of the city. Obviously this imbalance needs to be fixed, particularly in an age where the national economy remains stagnant. Access Green is proud to play a role in any way we can in that process. This is what separates Access Green from other companies. Our mantra: education is the key to creating a healthier world.
Access Green: Saving Energy. Money. Planet.
