Go Green - Solar for Green Home

How can you go green and achieve LEED® certification?
LEED for Homes

LEED for Homes is a voluntary rating system that promotes the design and construction of high-performance green homes, including affordable housing, mass-production homes, custom designs, stand-alone single-family homes, duplexes and townhouses, suburban and urban apartments and condominiums and lofts in historic buildings.

LEED homes have lower energy and water bills, reduced greenhouse gas emissions and fewer problems with mold, mildew and other indoor toxins. LEED home is more safer and healthier, more comfortable and more durable.

LEED certification is something that consumers can look for to readily identify homes that have been third-party inspected, performance-tested and certified as truly green homes that will perform better than standard homes. Homebuilders using LEED are able to differentiate their homes as some of the best on the market.

LEED® Certification

LEED® stands for The Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Green Building Rating System™. The U.S. Green Building Council developed a set
of standards that building owners and operators use to construct or convert conventional buildings into sustainable green high performance buildings. The mission of the U.S. Green Building Council is to improve the quality of life for people by using sustainable practices.

LEED certification offers third party validation of a project’s energy efficient and green features and verifies that the building is operating in a sustainable way!

How does a solar power system installation contribute to LEED certification? Green homes utilize many environmental aspects including energy saving and generation. Once energy efficiency strategies are utilized, green homes further reduce our dependence on conventional energy sources as they generate some or all of their energy needs through alternative energy sources like the sun, wind, geothermal energy and biomass.

A building owner or operator needs to earn points toward their LEED rating by using the various energy efficiency business processes and operating procedures listed in the checklists.

Renewable energy, such as a solar power system can earn you from 1-4
points depending on how much your electric usage is offset by renewable
