Green Resources by State
Green initiatives, programs and other resources organized by
state.
In the past several years, "green construction" has become a major focus of
the entire building community.  In the government's effort to encourage green
building several
federal and state programs have been created to ensure that builders and
consumers have an incentive to invest in green building.

There are certification programs for the builders to ensure that they have met
certain standards to be considered green builders.  There are also incentives
for consumers to invest in eco friendly and energy saving solutions. Below are
some of the federal programs that are now in place to encourage green
construction.  We will be continually updating this section as more programs
are enacted.


LEED -  Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design.  LEED For
Homes is a rating system to ensure that homes said to be Green are indeed
energy efficient and built to conserve resources.  Check out the official us
government site

Energy Star - ENERGY STAR qualified homes offer homebuyers all the
features they want in a new home, plus energy-efficient improvements that
deliver better performance, greater comfort, and lower utility bills.

accelerate the adoption of building practices that result in energy-efficient,
healthier and environmentally sustainable buildings by promoting credible and
practical green building approaches for residential and commercial construction.
