Milestone Reached in LEED-Certified Homes
The U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) recently announced “that more than 20,000 homes across the U.S. have earned certification through the LEED for Homes program.” The LEED for Homes program “provides guidance and verification that homes are designed and built to be energy- and resource-efficient and healthy for occupants.” This is quite an accomplishment for sustainable design. According to USGBC, “since the launch of LEED for Homes in 2008, more
than 20,000 residential units have certified with nearly 79,000 additional units in the pipeline. Over half of all LEED-certified homes are in the affordable housing category.”
Nate Kredich, Vice President of Residential Market Development, USGBC says, “LEED for Homes is moving the residential market further and faster towards high-performing, healthy homes that save residents money.”
