What is Green Technology?
Green energy technology can mean a multitude of things to a number of eco-friendly companies. For DM Group Associates, Inc. it means supporting the environment by constructing green buildings and instilling business practices that help the ecosystem. DMGA’s first project is Save-More Finer Foods, a supermarket that relies on green energy technology.
Save-More Finer Foods uses solar panels to harness electrical power and cisterns to capture rainwater. It is designed with skylights to bring in natural lighting from the sun to reduce energy costs during daylight hours. Materials used to create the structure are more energy-efficient and environmentally friendly than those of traditional supermarkets.
Customers are encouraged to help make their contribution to our cause. Aside from finding fruits and vegetables from local growers and producers, Save-More also encourages customers to bring their own bags to avoid the use of plastics. The stores goal is to promote education and awareness on health, wellness and nutrition. This is achieved through sales and marketing campaigns, as well as in-store informational resources.
It's our believe that when people understand the facts behind what is green technology and living green, they can make educated choices about the way they live without making huge sacrifices. When that happens, not only will our customers be healthier on the whole, but so will the planet we share. If you'd like to be part of this exciting process be sure to check out our support the cause page or contact us today.

Q: What is Green Building?
Q: Does green building cost more than conventional building?
Planning and design efforts for a green building will be somewhat more costly than such efforts for a conventional building. The additional thought that goes into integrated design will produce a building that costs no more to construct than a conventional building. Further, a green building will save operating dollars - often between 30 and 50 percent - compared to a conventional building. These savings, of course, occur through the life of the building.
