Many environmentally desirable changes, such as retrofitting for energy and water efficiency or installation of renewable energy equipment, are most easily and economically accomplished when incorporated into a remodeling or renovation project. See Carl Seville, Linda Mason Hunter, Dan Chiras, David Bergman, Eric Huffman, and Robin Pharo.
