Using the principle of conservation, a long-held creed of the Green Movement and environmental groups in general, some Eco-Lofts, as they have been so dubbed, are being built just outside Atlanta. These Eco-Lofts are themselves powered by conventional electricity, but the developers purchased 1 year’s worth of wind power credits from a nearby wind farm. Buyers do end up paying a bit of a premium due to the upfront purchase of the credits, yet most of the units have been sold.
If you live in the Chamblee area, you can get your own Eco-Loft in the $200 to $500k range. From the pics, they look pretty sweet.
