Simms Chevrolet may look a little different next year. Because GM has given the green light to remodel, the Simms brothers will use local resources to “go green,”
“We already recycle oil, oil filters, batteries, paper, cardboard, Freon, anti-freeze, metal and plastic..." said Bruce Simms. “Now we are looking at that same theme for our construction project.”
Alternative energy is on the list of possible new changes at Simms according to Jim Simms.
"We have begun to talk to local experts in solar and wind technologies; and we are looking at repurposing the materials and structures that already exist because we don't think that this project should be wasteful."
Although local permits and regulations have to be met, engineers have already been contracted to survey the site and make suggestions. Local labor and materials will be the first choice for the renovation according to the Simms brothers.
“We all need to do our part for our community,” said Jim. “We want to be a leader in this area and be a good example for other businesses.”
