About us - Howland Green Homes - Dave de Sylva

The Howland Green Program

A unique combination of lowering energy consumption on locations even removed from the building site by offering free reduction practices to existing inefficient buildings. Howland Green will also generate off site solar on nearby buildings which, when combined with the on site photo voltaic system will exceed all demands generated by the building and giving back to the community the excess clean pollution free energy.

Howland Green Tree Fund

Dave de Sylva’s commitment to planting 1000’s of trees in conjunction with Forest Ontario in conservation areas around the Province continues and thereby guarantees Mother Nature’s place in ongoing sequestering of atmospheric carbon for decades to come. This program will continue to reflect Dave’s passion to bring real engagement of known technology to deal with ever increasing global climate issues. The Tree Fund will reflect and be a function of the very building program for each project by sponsoring mass planting for each project.
