Toni Lynch entered the construction business upon his return from military service in Vietnam. Having developed extensive experience with foundation and roofing methods and materials, Toni recognized the energy superiority of insulated concrete forms (ICF), and he became a builder/distributer for the Polysteel line of ICFs, which he supplied to affordable housing developers.
Toni’s energy consciousness led him to search out state of-the-art efficiency in typical HVAC components, convenience appliances, and lighting. Now having conquered the energy conservation side of building construction, Toni sought ways to supplement the energy needs of his homes with non-carbon-based, alternate sources.
This led to his expertise in solar photovoltaics and geo-thermal heating and cooling systems. Toni championed this new Green Technology to the point where his efforts and accomplishments were cited in 1996 by the US Department of Energy.
He went on to become a Trade Ally of the NJ Clean Energy Program and, with Kennedy, construction-managed the large PV installations illustrated in the Case Study under the Solar Power section. Toni has also been retained by financial institutions that have sent him across the country to inspect for them solar farms they are financing.
Finally, in 2014 Toni built the first “Zero Net Energy Cost Home” on record in PA, seen in the Alternate Energy Section.
