Narragansett, RI –– December 4, 2009 –– Green Life Smart Life (GLSL) is excited to announce the official launch of their sustainable local home showcase, created to educate Rhode Islanders on how to create a smart, eco-friendly, modern dwelling. Located on the beautiful  in Narragansett, the project features a smart meter with home energy management and monitoring, geothermal HVAC system, lighting control, connected entertainment, and other smart home innovations. GLSL will open its doors to the public on December 12, 2009 from 10 am to 5 pm to announce its LEED-H rating and present all of the eco-friendly products and technologies used in the project.

 “Homeowners want to make socially responsible buying decisions when it comes to building or remodeling their house, but there are so many resources and so much misinformation,” homeowner Kimberly Lancaster Hageman said. “This is a real home for a real family. It shows how fun and easy it is to make smart decisions and operate a home efficiently without sacrificing comfort, convenience, or original style. Our goal is to show other families how you can make your home high-tech, high-design, and high-efficiency all while being environmentally conscious.”

Additionally, in keeping with the holiday spirit, Green Life Smart Life requests that each entrant to the home bring one canned good (or a $3 donation) to be donated to the Johnnycake Center in Peacedale, Rhode Island. The home is located off of Rte 1A in Anawan Cliffs at 1 South Cliff Drive, Narragansett, RI.  For questions or directions, please email ashley@castercomm.com.
