Energy Star 3.1 for Contractors: Green Built Alliance Fall 2023 Workshops

This class will serve as an introduction for contractors to certifying homes through the Energy Star system for efficient construction. Homes certified through this system must be strict building performance standards. This class will familiarize builders with the certification system and the recent changes.

Participants will leave the class with an understanding of the following:

  1. The process for getting a home certified
  2. Tricky checklist items that builders struggle with
  3. How the reference home has changed
  4. Best “pickup opportunities” to meet Energy Star
  5. Key house characteristics that make it harder to meet Energy Star

This course has been approved as a two-hour elective course eligible for continuing-education credit through the North Carolina Licensing Board for General Contractors. The hours additionally apply toward Green Built Alliance’s Regenerative Professional Accreditation. The class may also meet continuing-education criteria for other organizations; please email danny@greenbuilt.org with questions related to qualifying for continuing education.
