PQA’s Ken Pringle appears on the NJN Public Television Special, “A Green Revolution Takes Root in the Garden State,” which premiered on NJN on Sunday, April 19, and began running nationally on PBS stations beginning on Monday evening, April 20. The show will be rebroadcast on NJN on Saturday, April 26 at 3 pm. (Other PBS affiliates may present the show at different times, so check your local listings.) The documentary was filmed in Hi-Def format, and includes several stunning clips of Belmar, whose green building efforts are highlighted in the documentary. Pringle discusses his efforts to promote sustainable development as the mayor of Belmar.
“A quiet green revolution in the building world is evolving, and a first wave of innovative green design projects large and small have already hit the ground. NJN’s one-hour high definition special “Green Builders” profiles a cast of green building pioneers who have taken the leap into making their part of the ‘built environment’ a more energy-efficient and environmentally friendly place,” according to the NJN advance about the documentary. “Collectively, the green builders are building the foundation for a more widespread movement toward making America’s built environment less harmful to the dwindling supply of healthy natural resources and even less expensive to operate. Their homes and offices are the proving grounds for green building, and their personal experiences reveal that building greener is less complicated and expensive than you probably thought, and more rewarding in the long run.” The segment about Belmar starts at about 35:20 into the video.
