How eco-friendly solutions say a lot about your community.

By Alice LaPlante

Common components of eco-friendly programs.

Promoting eco-friendly solutions is a great way to help strengthen your community’s image and brand. It conveys a powerful message that resonates with potential buyers and renters.

Take a look at your community and see what you can include in your eco-friendly story. Some of the easiest—and most economical—options to build your brand are listed below:

  • Recycling dispensers
  • Energy star-rated appliances
  • Energy-efficient windows
  • Carefully calibrated building design
  • Eco-friendly building materials
  • Recycled flooring or landscape materials
  • Light-emitting diode (LED) lighting
  • Solar power
  • Water-filtration and smart-irrigation systems
  • Electric-vehicle (EV) charging stations
  • Quantum Fiber internet (yes, this should definitely be on your list!)

Fiber technology is proven to be energy efficient.

Europacable, an association that represents Europe’s leading wire and cable producers, commissioned a trio of studies and summarized them together in a white paper to demonstrate which connectivity technologies saved the most energy among different choices of broadband that consumers were being offered. In 2022, the third study found that optical fiber, on a GPON network, is the optimal technology across many architectures including cellular 4G and 5G networks. Indeed, the study found that fiber brings considerable power savings in population-density scenarios.

Furthermore, Fiber-GPON is an energy-efficient technology. Another white paper by Europacable found Fiber-GPON has the advantages of relatively low energy consumption, a long lifespan, and a vast array of future capabilities. In all these ways, it minimizes ecological damage to the planet. And that’s something that will be music to residents’ and owners’ ears.

Why Quantum Fiber Communities deliver more eco-friendly value.

Ultra-fast and super-reliable residential solutions like Quantum Fiber Connected Communities instant internet activation technology provides homes and apartments with preinstalled fiber network and equipment. Plus, Quantum Fiber customers can conveniently access 24/7 online support and peruse their account information through paperless billing. All this is good news for the environment, as fewer truck rolls consume less fuel, among other resources.

For communities and builders, creating or remodeling sustainable housing can require less waste (energy and water), more reuse and recycling, better reliability, less maintenance, and greater resident satisfaction. Now that’s an eco-friendly story worth telling!
