Instructor: Matt Jansing

Originally from Louisville, Kentucky, Matt has been working in the energy and sustainability industry for over 5 years. After serving roles in the Midwest, including municipal government and energy utility programs, Matt moved to Summit County in search of a more challenging and enabling environment. Currently, Matt’s main role at Deeper Green is modeling and inspecting homes undergoing Summit’s newest sustainable building code: the DOE’s Zero Energy Ready Homes program.


As one of the few 3rd party verifiers in the area known as a HERS Rater, Matt has provided rating services to over 60 projects attempting the new, ambitious code in the short time it’s been implemented. Matt is proud and excited for Summit County to be the only jurisdiction in the US so far to adopt it as a mandatory code.
