Green-built homes are at risk of becoming less of a novelty. Today, the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) announced that more than 10,000 homes in the U.S. have earned a LEED-for-Homes certification.
These homes, built to the green standards developed by the USGBC, range from multi-family to single family houses and appear in all price ranges, according to the USGBC.
“Reaching this milestone signifies the continued transformation of the home building industry towards high-performing, healthy homes that save home owners money,” said Nate Kredich, vice president of Residential Market Development, U.S. Green Building Council.
