There are many great eco-friendly and ‘green’ houses for sale in Costa Rica. This is due to the immense drive that some builders and landowners have made in recent years in the country to practice green building techniques and incorporate energy saving and efficient details into Costa Rica homes for sale. The ever growing tourism industry also has vowed to maintain a small footprint with many establishments boasting that they are neutral with regards to their emissions.
Part of Costa Rica’s massive appeal, apart from the views and affordable Costa Rica beachfront property, is that the country has some pretty clear goals that revolve around becoming and maintaining an eco-friendly country. It has lead the way for the rest of Latin America with regards to becoming more eco-friendly and boosting eco-tourism to the countries in Latin America as a whole. It has a goal of becoming the first carbon-neutral country by 2021 and many of it’s lands are retained for conservation. In order to meet this goal, the country has developed plans to re-forest vast lands to offset emissions. In fact, nearly 30% of the lands in the country are designated as national parks or natural reserves already. Another way that the country gets its citizens to participate in green initiatives is to reward their electric energy stewardship. The Costa Rican Electricity Institute, the government owned power, provides energy based on how much energy you consume. The less energy you consume, the lower your rate per kilowatt hour!
