Boast A Post Challenge - Kudos to Jan Green

"So the Fifth Element of Home Ownership is utility bills, P + I + T + I + U !"
- Jan Green


For my Boast-A-Post Challenge submission, hosted by Richie Alan Naggar  I'd like to send Kudos to Jan Green who has taken her commitment to her niche of energy efficiency in real estate to a whole 'nother level. You might say she's put her niche on steroids. 

I've been watching Jan for a while and become very aware of the reputation she has made for herself in the energy sustainability niche.  Not only is she involved locally and on the state level in Arizona, she has also been invited to participate on a National Association of Realtors Committee on the subject. 

2019 - Year of Progress!
By: Jan Green 

The above post, written by Jan in January of this year, is the post I've chosen to highlight. It is an amazing testament to the value of seriously and passionately working your niche. 

Reading Jan's post makes me want to make my home more energy efficient and I am fortunate to live in one of 3 counties with the least expensive electricity in the entire nation. The reality, though, is for every kilowatt I save in my home (regardless of how inexpensive it is) that's a kilowatt of energy that is available for someone else to use. 

Having just returned from a few weeks in Arizona, I am reminded of how very fortunate I am to enjoy low energy costs. However, that doesn't mean I shouldn't be environmentally responsible and do my share in the efforts toward energy conservation. 

I encourage you to follow Jan's example and pursue whatever you are passionate about and make it work for you in your business.

Hey Jan Green 
As soon as I saw this Challenge I thought about YOU. It just took me a while to write it since I'd been traveling.  And, I always enjoy spending time with you when I'm in the Phoenix area. Thank you for taking the time to meet up with me and the others.

Thanks, Jan Green .  I'm super happy we've been able to connect on a friend level, as well.  I would love to attend one of your seminars someday if it meshes with my travels.

Hi Carol, great post to boast and Jan Green is the name that comes up when thinking of solar utilities in homes here. I would love to see this formula used more often -  P + I + T + I + U.

Hi Carol:

What a wonderful tribute to Jan. She certainly knows what she is doing around energy and is a tremendous inspiration in the arena of going green!  Love PITIU!!

Jan's a wonderful blogger, and lots of fun, too - I had the great pleasure of meeting her last September at a meetup in AZ (along with some other wonderful Rainers, I might add!).

I love the new acronym - PITIU!  I will be adopting this in the future.  Thank you for sharing this Carol Williams! A very nice tribute to Jan Green ...  (by the way, I just got back from a week visiting family in Arizona too and the subject of "utilities" came up as it always does ...
