Keith Winston

Keith Winston works with the Green Building Program at Washington DC’s Department of Consumer and Regulatory Affairs. The award-winning Green Building Program is responsible for enforcing compliance of the Energy and Green codes in Washington DC. Keith is a green building inspector, and also does plan reviews and inspections of solar systems in DC, as well as building and maintaining many of the tools with which the team operates.
