2010 is the 40th anniversary of Earth Day, though it has gained increasing popularity over the last 15 years. “Garbett Homes is proud to be part of this 40th anniversary celebration of environmental awareness and we’re excited to have Grammy award winning artists TRAIN headlining the show,” said Rene Oehlerking, Marketing Director. TRAIN won a Grammy for their single Drops of Jupiter (Tell Me) and currently have a new album with a hit called Hey, Soul Sister.
Garbett Homes is turning the entire attention of their company to building green homes in Utah. While other home builders are offering “green” components, Garbett is doing it without raising their prices. The flagship green community is called Solaris, located at Daybreak in West Jordan. Featuring solar powered HVAC and electric, the Solaris collection is attractively designed and priced extremely competitively. Other Garbett communities are fully EnergyStar compliant.
