Arlington, VA -- The Consumer Electronics Association (CEA) is partnering with Green Life Smart Life, a custom green home building project being built by the owner of a well-respected PR agency serving the consumer electronics channel. As the primary technology sponsors of the project, CEA and its member companies will be featured in real life applications of green living and design in conjunction with custom electronics that embrace today's smart home technology.
“CEA is proud to sponsor Green Life Smart Life to highlight how our member's products and services help homeowners become better environmental stewards," said Jason Oxman, CEA's senior vice president of industry affairs. "Our member companies are on the cutting edge of developing innovative technologies that help homeowners to live green through consumer electronic products that manage and monitor a home's energy consumption."
The Green Life Smart Life project is a green home building project that will demonstrate how homeowners can make eco-friendly decisions that benefit their families and give their homes a technological edge. Applying for LEED-H certification, the custom 4,300-plus square-foot home will showcase real-life applications in green living and design in conjunction with custom electronics that embrace today's smart home technology. The home will be a case study for the updated TechHome Rating System (THRS), showcasing the importance of structured wiring to homeowners, builders and custom integrators throughout the building process and the installation of home technologies.
"We are thrilled to welcome CEA as a platinum sponsor for the Green Life Smart Life project," said founder and homeowner Kimberly Hageman, who also own PR firm, Caster Communications. "More and more homeowners are choosing to make socially responsible buying decisions when it comes to building or remodeling their house. With CEA's support, GLSL will showcase how the installed technologies and services offered by CEA members play an integral role in digital connectivity. We look forward to working together to show other families how to make a home high-tech, high-design, and high-efficiency while being environmentally conscious."
CEA is committed to increasing awareness of environmentally-friendly products, programs and practices within the consumer electronics industry, as well as working with lawmakers and government officials to develop public policy solutions that protect innovation and consumer choice while promoting energy efficiency and environmental stewardship. CEA's platinum sponsorship of the GLSL project is among the organization's initiatives to promote greater environmental awareness.
