Green Built Homes Highlights: January 2018 Net-Zero Certifications

Green Built Homes

Green Built Alliance congratulates the following builders that attained net-zero certification in January 2018 through our nonprofit’s Green Built Homes program.

Green Built Homes is a voluntary, statewide green-building certification program administered by the Green Built Alliance and offered to builders throughout the region.

Representing the newest level of Green Built Homes certification, these net-zero energy homes not only meet all the requirements of the general certification checklist (which has above-code standards for materials use, site sustainability, water conservation, indoor air quality, and appliances), but also include enough renewable-energy features (typically in the form of solar photovoltaics) to achieve a HERS rating of 15 or lower.

We invite you to learn more about our Green Built Homes program, and get involved in the movement!
