Maclay Architects designed NRG Systems in Hinesburg to be near carbon neutral and a productive workspace for employees.

Imagine a building that produced more energy than it consumed. That sounds like something that only wealthy people or big institutions could afford to build, right? Not so, says Vermont architect William Maclay.  He says net-zero energy efficient design is affordable and achievable for everyone right now.

We talk to William Maclay about his book The New Net Zero.

Also on the program, the state's Fish and Wildlife Department has started its annual turkey brood survey. Amy Alfieri, the wild turkey project leader, explains what information the state is looking for, how to collect it and how the information will be used.

Broadcast live on Tuesday, August 5 at noon; rebroadcast at 7 p.m.
