Whether you have a new construction home, previously owned home, or a vintage home – we have several ways for you to reduce your home energy & service costs.
1) Insulate your attic
With an unfinished attic, you want to have insulation in between the ceiling joists. With new construction homes, it is required to have R45 insulation installed. If you are moving into a pre-owned house, look around the attic to make sure the insulation has not been damaged. If so, make sure to replace with new.

Lewes, DE – By committing to going green, Atlantic Millwork & Cabinetry is focused on future growth that will make the building materials supplier and distributor more competitive in the residential and commercial housing and building materials marketplace. The company strongly believes sustainability takes into account how we might live in harmony with the natural world around us, protecting it from damage and destruction. Having been an environmentally conscious company since they opened their doors in 1991, Atlantic Millwork & Cabinetry has taken major steps towards increasing commitment to being green and recently joined the Green Business Bureau (GBB), which is a national membership organization that uses an online assessment to certify green businesses.
With the aid of a grant from the Rural Energy for America Program that covered 25% of the cost, Atlantic Millwork & Cabinetry commissioned The CNC Solar Company to install a 143 kW DC system on the southern facing upper roof of their warehouse. The 550 panels system has taken the company nearly off the grid and provides nearly 95% of the electricity it takes to operate their offices and warehouse.
A small business in a small town makes big news with solar energy. Atlantic Millwork and Cabinetry is a family owned small business in Lewes specializing in windows, doors, cabinetry, decking, millwork products and more. Recently, they hosted Senator Tom Carper (D) from Delaware and Kathy Beisner, the acting director for USDA Rural development in MD/DE for a tour of their facility and their new solar energy system.

Our mission at USDA Rural Development is to help increase economic opportunity and improve the quality of life in Rural America,” said Beisner. “One way we do that is through the Rural Energy for America Program that has helped roughly 55 rural small businesses and farmers in Delaware improve their bottom line by installing renewable energy systems and energy efficient equipment. Through Federal loan guarantees and grants the program helps cut carbon emissions, creates jobs and saves families hundreds of dollars on their utility bills each year.”
Small businesses across the United States are using USDA financing in innovative ways as a means to creating more sustainable communities and the enhancement of economic competitiveness.
