Green Rating and Green certified homes are an excellent product, unfortunately the concept of “Green” has been skewed and made it difficult for the public to disseminate and identify to the purpose of having a fully Certified Green home. We wish to clarify and offer the clients verifiable improvements in Energy Savings and equally in the Indoor Quality of the Air they breathe. These are main contributors to the Green Rated programs and certainly concerns of our clients. This will allow more members to obtain High Performance Designations by simply verifying the substantial reduction in energy usage per the committee standards and on this will ride the improvement to indoor air quality.
