Building Your New Home
New construction projects are ideal for building efficiency and clean energy into your home from the start.
Discover programs, resources, and tips to lower the carbon footprint and energy costs of your new home.
Designing Energy Efficient Homes
When you build a new home or complete a gut rehab of an existing home, you can use sustainable design techniques, highly efficient technologies, and clean energy sources to limit your home’s energy use and forgo the need for fossil fuels like oil, gas, and propane. Solutions like air sealing, insulation, passive design, heat pumps, LED lighting, and solar power can dramatically reduce your new home’s energy bills and carbon footprint while improving comfort and safety. You may even be able to create a “net-zero” home, meaning your new home can produce as much renewable energy as it uses for one year.
