The Home Builders Association of Connecticut is bringing green to the mainstream with Build Green Connecticut. Based on the National Green Building ProgramTM, it includes the first and only ANSI-certified, green building standard in the nation (the NGBS, or National Green Building Standard).
NAHB's National Green Building Program offers builders, remodelers, developers, and other home building professionals a variety of services to learn, incorporate, and market green building.
Spearheaded by the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), the Builders Challenge is a voluntary effort to provide compelling answers. Through the Builders Challenge, participating homebuilders will have an easy way to differentiate their best energy-performing homes from other products in the marketplace, and to make the benefits clear to buyers.
